Dear all,

I am using zimbra 8.6 and i have one dl which has specific user allowed to send mail to it, now i want to add user of different domain( like gmail) to send mail to dl.
checking in "zmprov ckr dl" shows ALLOWED but while sending mail gives bounce back "571 Sender is not allowed to email this distribution list".

Can anyone help me on this.

First you should enable milters if you have not already done it ( ... ol-by.html).

Then, there is a long-standing Zimbra feature request to update the rights to distribution lists (realized via milters in ZImbra) automatically. It is not done even in version 8.8.10 (milter cache is not reset after ACL change on distribution lists, you need to do it manually).
What you need to do after each change of distribution list ACL changes is to refresh the milter configuration from LDAP:

Code: Select all

 zmmilterctl refresh

You can get some more examples here ... rvice.html

Hi Andrey,

Thanks for your reply, miletrs is already enabled and running in my server and I had done refresh as well but still was unable to send mail to dl from other domain.

Please suggest any further solutions.
