?'s re: switching from Open Source to Appliance
I've been running Zimbra Open Source at home for my family happily for a couple of years now. I have been doing this with 8 mailboxes on an Intel Atom board. I just ordered the newest Intel Atom board (no CPU fan) and will be using an SSD.
I am considering using the free 10-user appliance instead of the open source edition, but I have a special configuration and I want to know if I can customize the appliance in the same way.
The most important customization is for my children. I basically setup a whitelist so that Zimbra only allows them to send to a specific list and only allows that specific list to send to them. All other attempts, in or out, get dropped. Can I do the same thing with the appliance?
Also, I customize the junk mail filter to be more aggressive, as DWTractor has posted in the forums in the past. Can that still be done?
Are there any negatives I should be aware of before doing this?
Custom Config: IS POSSIBLE
So I've been playing around with the appliance now for a while today and have figured out that indeed, you can muck around the command line via SSH (thanks zelthian), and add customizations. Specifically, I am making additions to the zmmta.cf file and they are sticking and showing up in the main.cf file.
My customizations are based on these wiki articles:
RestrictPostfixRecipients - Zimbra :: Wiki
Restrict sending to certain domains - Zimbra :: Wiki
Restrict users to certain domain - Zimbra :: Wiki
Basically, I am slowly giving my young teenagers access to e-mail, but I use this to control who can send to them and who they can send to. It's a two-way whitelist.
