    Default Outgoing mail seen as Spam

    Hi All,
    I have installed the latest version of Zimbra and all is well.
    The only problem I am having is that external mail seems to be returned rejected
    by mail servers seeing it as spam.
    The server is behind a NAT Firewall (untangle) , our external mail is hosted (POP)
    by a ISP.
    It appears that the mail servers don't trust the sending IP?

    Any help will be appreciated, I am not a network guru, so simple explanations would be welcome!

    Many mailservers consider that mails sent from a DSL/cable IP are spams.

    If you want to avoid this, you need to use a smarthost : your ZCS server forwards all outgoing mail to a server that stands on the Internet (not at the end of a DSL line) and this server sends the mails to the destination servers.

    This way, the destination servers see the mails arriving from a "nice" server and do not tag it spam.
