    Default Configuring two Zimbra Servers running side by side...

    Hello,
    We have two Zimbra servers running together. The main one for our admin accounts, and the secondary for our agents. I have been able to get the two servers to send email back and forth, but the secondary will not receive from external addresses. I have tried to set everything up using the "Split-Domain" wiki article but I had no luck there. When I implemented those settings the mail stopped flowing all together... Maybe I'm placing the commands in the wrong places? Our primary has a DNS name and external address, our secondary only has an external address. They both have their local DNS names.

    Primary info:
    Zimbra.ssg.local
    172.20.0.58

    Secondary info:
    zc2.ssg.local
    172.20.0.15

    We basically want the first one to forward any emails that are found to the secondary server... Any help with this will be greatly appreciated...

    Read the wiki article on Split Domain.

    Thank for your reply, but as I mentioned I already did try that... When I implemented those settings we actually stopped receiving mail all together... That is why I think I must have been doing something slightly wrong...

    That's quite likely but as I don't know exactly what you've nor what commands you entered I'm completely in the dark - you need to tell us exactly what command you ran on the server (.... and please don't tell me you've followed the article ).

    Hello Bill,
    Sorry about that... On our primary server I created a catchall email address for each of our domains, and then ran the other command:
    Code:
        zimbra@zimbra:~$ zmprov modifyAccount _catchall@cjones.com zimbraMailCatchAllAddress @cjones.com
        zimbra@zimbra:~$ zmprov modifyAccount _catchall@legacysupport.com zimbraMailCatchAllAddress @legacysupport.com
        zimbra@zimbra:~$ zmprov modifyAccount _catchall@levelonetech.com zimbraMailCatchAllAddress @levelonetech.com
        zimbra@zimbra:~$ zmprov modifyAccount _catchall@levelonetechnology.com zimbraMailCatchAllAddress @levelonetechnology.com
        zimbra@zimbra:~$ zmprov modifyAccount _catchall@wacooffice.com zimbraMailCatchAllAddress @wacooffice.com
        zimbra@zimbra:~$ zmprov modifyAccount _catchall@s2g.net zimbraMailCatchAllAddress @s2g.net
        
        zimbra@zimbra:~$ zmprov md s2g.net zimbraMailTransport smtp:zcs2.ssg.local
    Then on the second one I ran this code:
    Code:
        zimbra@zcs2:~$ zmprov mcf zimbraMtaRelayHost zimbra.ssg.local
        zimbra@zcs2:~$ zmprov mcf zimbraMtaDnsLookupsEnabled FALSE
    Then on both servers primary and then secondary, I ran the following:
    Code:
        zimbra@zimbra:~$ postfix stop
        zimbra@zimbra:~$ postfix start

    This stopped the email from flowing... Any thoughts? We are new to Zimbra, recovering from a catastrophic failure of our old exchange mail server... Thanks!
