Disposable Email Accounts

I use commercial services for disposable email accounts (also called 'anonymous'). This is for personal, legitimate usage, not for spam, abuse, avoiding responsibilities, or other nefarious purposes. Examples: At the consumer store for goods or services they may ask for an email address. Every websi...

Feedback on Zimbra after 1 year

I thought I'd post a note here about my experience with Zimbra over the last year, for anyone considering using it, and for those who support it. My first inquiry was in this thread a little over a year ago, Absolute Noob - Is Zimbra right for me? . I'll tell you now, the answer is yes. I have one i...

SMTP mail not saved to Sent Folder

If I send email via Outlook+IMAP/SMTP, the Sent folder gets a copy. Same if I send from the web UI. But if I use PHP_Mailer with the same socket, user, psw, the mail does go through but without a copy saved in Sent. I've tried adding a Filter for Outbound, with Recipient header contains "."...

Re: Peer review for backup plan

Thanks guys. As to my question #2 about incremental updates: Whatever is happening internally, I've observed that it takes the same amount of time to rsync --sparse whether locally or remotely. I'll cron mdb_copy on the Zimbra system shortly before the remote system comes in to pull out the files. S...

Re: ZCS 8.8.9 : CentOS to Ubuntu

I hear ya guys. Sincere thanks as always. No, it's not "really, really, really" bugging me. :mrgreen: So I'll leave the existing installation for now. But every time I want to setup a new boot process, or cron, or load a package or whatevah, I find I need to shift mental gears to remember ...

Re: Block SPAM email from new domains?

I was intrigued by your inquiry here. I feel like my hands are tied when it comes to AS/AV. I believe the answer to extend beyond SA regex rules is to create a custom plugin. I'm an experienced developer but I know nothing about SpamAssassin rules. However with a little searching I found some hits t...

ZCS 8.8.9 : CentOS to Ubuntu

I originally installed Zimbra over CentOS because (it seems) most of the notes in the wiki and forum focus on platform-specific details for CentOS. While I do like CentOS, I only have one CentOS in my network right now and that's only for Zimbra - all the rest are Ubuntu. (Which is weird because I s...

Peer review for backup plan

My current backup of Zimbra is initiated from another system on my network. It uses rsync to reach into the Zimbra server and retrieve the /opt/zimbra tree. Question 1: For zimbra, what else should be saved? Cron settings? Anything for the HTTP server? Anything else outside of that file system? The ...

Re: Is anyone using an anti-spam gateway service?

I'm a sole-proprietor with about a dozen domains and no more than a few accounts/aliases each. I Really dislike spam and came to Zimbra in my quest to get more control over filtering, and other aspects of server maintenance unsatisfied by commercial hosts. Given this VERY modest usage (not even qual...

Re: all users send from alias domain

If you do get a response for how to send from the alias in this special configuration, you may note that emails from UserX send via that AliasZ might be received as "From AliasZ on behalf of UserX...". Please see my thread on that topic, which which I have not yet found a solution. Good lu...
