ZCS 8.0 piped script problems

Postby zazu » Wed Dec 12, 2012 11:10 am

Good evening to all,

sorry for the bad english, I'm Italian
I have a problem with piped scripts:
on a server with ZCS 7.2.0 I followed this wiki page and everything works

Configuring Postfix to work with piped scripts - Zimbra :: Wiki
on another server with ZCS 8.0, the procedure does not work, apparently the transport file is ignored and the system reports:
5.1.1 pipescriptaddress@mydomain.com: Recipient address rejected: User unknown in virtual mailbox table

I tried to solve it with /etc/aliases & /opt/zimbra/postfix/conf/virtual
here I can not make virtual to route correctly to the script in /etc/aliases
I get the error:
: Mail for my.system.hostname loops back to myself

any ideas?

ZCS 8.0 piped script problems

Postby zazu » Thu Dec 13, 2012 11:43 am

More info:
OSS is zimbra 8.0.0 on CentOS 6.3 x86_64
my intention is to create a sort of automated internal mailing list to write to all accounts of my company

this is the original system: Simple Forwarder - a small mailing list backend

my "simple forwarder" script is modified for multidomain.
I had implemented this solution on an old debian server + postfix + dovecot

and I have successfully exported to zimbra 7.2.0 with minor changes to the script and following the wiki
this small solution allows me to have an internal mailing list that employees can not unsubscribe, I have a blacklist to exclude service accounts and a limited list of approved senders
The zip attachment contains the whole system and the instructions

[ATTACH=CONFIG]5366[/ATTACH]
I'm trying to use it as an alias (like in debian + postfix), but zimbra 8 seems to ignore the local aliases
this is what i did:


# su - zimbra

$ zmlocalconfig -e postfix_virtual_alias_maps=' hash:${zimbra_home}/postfix/conf/virtual,proxy:ldap:${zimbra_home}/conf/ldap-vam.cf'

$ vi /opt/zimbra/postfix/conf/virtual
in virtual i've insert:
all@mycompany.org all-mycompany.com
$ postmap /opt/zimbra/postfix/conf/virtual
$ zmlocalconfig postfix_alias_maps

postfix_alias_maps = hash:/etc/aliases
$ exit
# vi /etc/aliases
in aliases i've insert:
all-mycompany.com: |"/opt/zimbra/mlist/bin/mlist.sh all-mycompany.com"
# chmod 666 aliases

# > aliases.db

# chmod 666 aliases.db
# su - zimbra

$ postalias /etc/aliases

$ newaliases

$ zmmtactl restart

when i send an email to all@mycompany.com, this is the result in /var/log/maillog

Hi zazu, in ZCS 8 you might want to take a look Dynamic distribution lists.
Think you can achieve similar results easily.

I tried it for a while, but I have not found where restrict senders

also, although less important where to insert a tag in the object, like a mailing list system

zazu, you're right Dynamic lists it's not a whole mailing list system.
However, you can restrict senders using


zmprov grr dl usr sendToDistList


as stated in ZCS Admin Guide 8.0

I followed the wiki at

Configuring Postfix to work with piped scripts - Zimbra :: Wiki

to set up an alias to a pipe, and it worked for local mail but mail from a remote account bounced

with the error message "Recipient address rejected: User unknown in virtual mailbox table".
The problem went away when I created a mail user with the name of the alias.

That user never receives mail because it is redirected to the pipe.
Version is Zimbra 8.0.5_GA_5839 (build 20130910124038)
YMMV
Cheers -- Ross
