    Default Can't Seem To Configure Getmail and Zimbra Correctly

    Okay, I have my Zimbra server (Collaboration Suite FOSS version) fully configured and working. However, specific email accounts need to have the email printed and then downloaded on a specific schedule every day. Automatic polling of an external POP3 account doesn't work because the hours need to be precise ("every 3 hours" isn't precise enough).

    I tried configuring Getmail to download & print the emails via cron, but Zimbra seems to randomly lose emails this way (emails will print and then not download into the system). I have it configured as an MTA_external source using /opt/zimbra/postfix/sbin/sendmail as the target.

    The exact configuration is as follows:

    type = SimplePOP3SSLRetriever
    server =
    username = hgc_orderprocess
    password = (BLOCKED)
    type = MultiDestination
    destinations = ('[zimbra]','[printmail]')
    type = MDA_external
    path = /opt/zimbra/postfix/sbin/sendmail
    arguments = ("-t",)
    user = orderprocessing
    type = MDA_external
    path = /usr/local/printmail/printmail.php
    arguments = ('--title="Order Processing"',)
    delete = true

    Oh, sorry for not mentioning it earlier, but I have searched the forums for answers. I wasn't able to find anything on this particular problem.
