Do I have to restart Zimbra manually everytime the internet is down ?

Postby Wasowski » Wed Oct 26, 2011 3:00 pm

Hi,
I upgraded the firmware of my router and I was surprised to see that it was impossible to connect to Zimbra when the internet was up again.
Is there a way to force Zimbra to not go down ?

There should be no reason your Zimbra server is affected by a router firmware upgrade or internet down. It will work as normal and queue any messages needing to send out. All connections from the outside would of course not work until the internet has been restored.
Give us more details on the issue you are having. Could be a firewall rule issue that you cannot connect?

Hi Xeon,
you are right, the server is not going down even if I turn off my router. It was probably something else .

I'm curious now. I always thought that you would have to have a static IP address to ever host a mail server (because of domain needing the MX record and IP).
Is there some way for home users with a non-static IP address to somehow host a Zimbra mail server? If so, I am VERY interested in knowing how to do this.
While researching into Zimbra as a possible replacement for our Exchange server at work, I thought it would be awesome to have a family email server but thought it impossible due to having anon-static IP.
From what I've read, there can be issues with emails coming from your "dynamic IP" mail server such as being automatically blocked / flagged as a spam site.
Thanks,

You will need public MX records and some hosting services provide Backup MX as part of the package (see easyDNS.com
