[SOLVED] Moved zimbra to new server - mail gets deferred

Postby goetzi » Tue Feb 05, 2008 5:38 am

Hi,
I moved my Zimbra install to a new server this night. Now I have the problem that all emails get into the deferred queue with the error "mail transport unavailable".
Here the zimbra.log of one example message sent from outside:
[QUOTE][zimbra@zimbra opt]$ tail -n 2000 /var/log/zimbra.log | grep 665171A74BFA

One thing is very interesting: that only happens for the domain schuelerunion.at
The delivery to another domain (michael@glatter-goetz.de which is an alias of michael.glatter-goetz@schuelerunion.at) works fine:

What can this be? I don't know why the mails are not delivered and this is a real showstopper.
Please help me!

Are all the zimbra services up and running? Does this thread shed any light on the problem? I assume that all your DNS records & /etc/hosts file are correct for that domain name?

[QUOTE]Does this thread shed any light on the problem?[/QUOTE]

No. The strange thing is that no all mails are deferred, only the ones for @schuelerunion.at.
[QUOTE]I assume that all your DNS records & /etc/hosts file are correct for that domain name?[/QUOTE]

Yes.

[zimbra@zimbra ~]$ cat /etc/hosts

# Do not remove the following line, or various programs

# that require network functionality will fail.

127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost

78.46.48.66 zimbra.schuelerunion.at zimbra

#::1 localhost6.localdomain6 localhost6


I can give you root/Zimbra admin access if needed.

Hm... if I want to do a postcat -q I get:

[zimbra@zimbra ~]$ postcat -q D17F51A74C90

postcat: fatal: open queue file D17F51A74C90: Permission denied


in /opt/zimbra/postfix/conf/main.cf the content_filter line is

[QUOTE]content_filter = smtp-amavis:[127.0.0.1]:10024[/QUOTE]
Disabling Antispam and Antivirus has no effect.
I have no idea what to do.

As said before, if you want root access to the machine you can get it.

Is your server currently still up? I can't get a connection to it from here, you don't have any firewall oir SElinux active do you?

Just out of interest, how did you move Zimbra to the new server? Could you post the output of the following commands (run on the zimbra server):
host `hostname`  
dig yourdomain.com mx

dig yourdomain.com any
just for my own peace of mind. :)

[QUOTE]how did you move Zimbra to the new server?[/QUOTE]

- Old server was NE 4.5.5 on CentOS4 x86

- Installed NE 4.5.6 on the new machine (CentOS5 x86)

- blocked port 25 on old server (mails were queued on secondary MX)

- made full backup of old server (using zmbackup)

- created domains on new server

- restored full backup on new machine

- updated to NE 5.0.2

- changed MX entry fitting to the new server

It would appear from those results that you don't have an A record, you need one (unless you'#re only posting partial details?).
