    Default emergency, how do I disable an open relay in zimbra?

    I'm trying in vain to stop the tens of thousands of emails being pumped into my server, which should not have an open relay.

    I need to disable the open relay.

    Open relay is off by default.
    1) Can you provide the /var/log/zimbra.log to prove that open relay is open?
    2) Have you done an open relay test?

    1) logging doesn't work unless I reboot!
    2) 35,000 emails from yahoo.tw prove the relay is open!

    HOW DO I DISABLE IT!

    NO IT DOESNT!

    Post logs to prove your zimbra install is relaying externally.

    I don't have logs because the logger doesn't work.

    no one seems to want to help me in acutally disabling the open relay.

    I don't need to argue over whether it's open or not.

    I need to close it.

    Calm down.

    Your supposition is incorrect. If we had open relay on by default, then we would have noticed.

    Now, if someone is using a username and password on your network, that they got a hold of, then it's possible someone is using your e-mail server as a relay.

    Unless you provide the /var/log/zimbra.log, we won't be able to help you.

    (PS quit typing in all caps.)

    Zimbra, by default, is not an open relay unless you've made it one - what modifications have you made to Zimbra? Why do you think it's an open relay? Search the internet for open relay test sites.

    In future do not add your post to threads that are over three years old, start a new thread after searching the forums for a solution or answer to your question.

    You should never do that.

    Reverse the changes you've made to Zimbra.

    This from my previous post also applies to you (do not do it again):
