Zimbra Community + MailScanner

Postby Gt180Full » Tue Feb 04, 2020 3:45 pm


I am recently suffering from some integration problems between Zimbra and MailScanner.

Currently I have implemented in my infrastructure, all my Zimbras pointing to the same MX, where there is MailScanner + MailWatch.

However MailScanner even performing its proper role of filtering spam, Zimbra is affecting the final result in these filters.

Example, I receive an email, such an email will be sent by MX (MailScanner), your score will be placed, and if everything agrees you will forward it to Zimbra, but that is the problem, because after MailScanner gives his score when he arrives at Zimbra he does another check and scores again, getting a discrepant score, placing valid emails for users as spam.

My question is how to tell Zimbra that the score that MailScanner placed is absolute. Or somehow integrate them so that it doesn't get such a discrepant score.

I would like to inform you that I do not know how to write English, because of that I used the Google Translate tool, to pass the necessary information, and I intend to use it throughout the topic in question.

Soon there may be errors in English.




Recentemente estou sofrendo com alguns problemas de integração entre o Zimbra e MailScanner.

Atualmente tenho implementado na minha infraestrutura, todos os meus Zimbras apontando para o mesmo MX, onde se tem o MailScanner + MailWatch.

Entretanto o MailScanner mesmo realizando o seu devido papel de filtrar spans, o Zimbra está afetando o resultado final nessas filtragens.

Exemplo, eu recebo um e-mail, tal e-mail será passado pelo MX (MailScanner), será colocado a sua pontuação, e se tudo estiver de acordo irá encaminhar para Zimbra, porém aí que está o problema, pois após o MailScanner dá sua pontuação quando chega no Zimbra ele faz outra checagem e pontua novamente, ficando com uma pontuação discrepante, colocando e-mail válidos para os usuários como spam.

A minha questão é como dizer para o Zimbra que a pontuação que MailScanner colocou é absoluta. Ou de alguma forma integrá-los para que não fique uma pontuação tão discrepante.

Why don't you take a look at using Rspamd?

Disabling SpamAssassin could be a solution.
Or disable check for ingoing mail.

You can also try these 2 commands and restart zimbra.

Code: Select all

zmprov mcf zimbraSpamHeader X-Spam-Disabled
zmprov mcf zimbraSpamHeaderValue YES
