    Default postfix routing for mail addressed to local machine

    first off: I've just started with zimbra and it looks great so far, kudos on the hard work.

    I'm testing zimbra on a server in my domain that doesn't have any real domains MX'ed to it. To get some messages flowing I have my own mail forwarded from our production mail server to my address @ the hostname of the test zimbra server. In zimbra I have the hostname of the machine defined as a domain as an alias for the domain my user account is in. This seems to be creating a configuration that postfix is unhappy about (although the mail gets routed correctly). It produces this error in the log:
    Mar 18 10:03:58 trweb2 postfix/trivial-rewrite[23183]: warning: do not list domain in BOTH mydestination and virtual_alias_domains

    If I want zimbra to accept mail for the local machine's name and forward it to a specific domain in zimbra, is there a better way to do it?

    A related question: given that another MTA won't coexist with zimbra, how can I configure the system so that local mail (like logwatch and cronjob output) gets delivered? Does it work to symlink /etc/alternatives/mta to /opt/zimbra/postfix/sendmail?

    Hi Sroy, and welcome!
    Do a search on your first problem, I'm pretty sure it's covered.

    As for your second question, the local is:
    Obviously, it really depends on which postfix you have. It's probably the highest one.
    I think that might be legacy/grandfathered. . .it might just be postfix

    1. the sendmail and mailq in /opt/zimbra/postfix work exactly as expected when linked from the appropriate /etc/alternatives.

    2. I have been unable to find an answer to the issue of appropriately routing mail for the machines local name. The MTA page in the wiki is a little light and the specifics of the interaction between zimbra and postfix are not clear to me.

    EDIT: I neglected to mention that routing for the local machine name works, I'm just concerned about the error.
