What to do so that Zarafa does not manage the delivery of emails in Zentyal?

zarafa is a Collaborative Software (GroupWare) open source that is included in Plant. It was designed to integrate with Microsoft Office Outlook as an alternative to Microsoft Exchange Server.

The downside of zarafa is that it has a web client that has an interface very similar to that of Outlook, so it is very intuitive for new users who are migrating to GNU / Linux. Anyway.

The problem was that I activated the module zarafa (to prove it) and from that moment, the emails that entered my server could not be delivered because it returned these 2 errors:

internal software error. Command output: Failed to resolve recipient...

or this other:

temporary failure. Command output: Unable to login for user <usuario>, error code: 0x8004010f

The issue apparently is that when activating zarafa ya Dovecot does not deliver the mail, and that is why in the records the Retransmission did it zarafa when in fact I did it before Dovecot.

I uninstalled the module and the problem still persisted. What did I do then? I edited the file /usr/share/ebox/stubs/mail/main.cf.mas and I removed the following lines:

On line 25 or so

And on line 95 or so:
% if ($zarafa) {
transport_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/transport
zarafa_destination_recipient_limit = 1
% }

Then I restarted the mail service:
/etc/init.d/ebox mail restart

and everything returned to normal.

    Hi, hopefully you can give me a hand I have the following problem:

    I have Zentyal 2.2.7 as a mail server, my domain is correctly configured, with the DNS of my ISP provider.
    I can enter via web from any external place http://midominio.com/webmail and I can send and receive emails without problems.

    My problem begins when configuring the email account in outlook, I can receive emails without problems, but I cannot send the following message when doing the test:
    Send test email message: Server replied: 554.5.7.1

    And if I send an email apparently it goes away, but within seconds I get the following email from the server:
    Some of the recipients did not receive your message.

    Subject: Proof of shipment….

    The following recipients cannot be located:

    mailxyz@gmail.com en 29/06/2012 23:00
    Server error: '554 5.7.1: Recipient address rejected: Access denied'

    Please, I need to configure the server so that emails can be sent from outlook without problems.

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    Good in case it helps to someone, this worked for me, in the mail settings in Advanced select to use SSL, pop3 -> 995, smtp -> 587, Use TLS encrypted connection. In Outgoing server select My outgoing server requires authentication and check Use the same settings as my incoming server.

    Remember to redirect the router ports.

    Regarding Zarafa, I am looking for and "capturing" a freelancer who may have an interest in collaborating with us doing setup, configuration and maintenance for our future clients who will use Zarafa.

    If you know of someone, please contact me. I would appreciate it.
