Usualy, i always use this guidance to integrating Zimbra + Mailman in Bahasa Indonesia Integrasi Zimbra Mail Server & Mailman Mailing List. Overall my configuration work fine as guidance. But, there is a problem about insert aliases and Virtual data Mailman. Finally, i decide to ask at Zimbra Forum in this link http://www.zimbra.com/forums/administrators/75286-integrated-zimbra-8-5-0-mailman-problem.html and problem solved with my self 😀 . This is step by step how to integrating Zimbra 8.5.0 with Mailman

POSTFIX_STYLE_VIRTUAL_DOMAINS = [ 'imanudin.net' ]
DEFAULT_URL_HOST = 'mail.imanudin.net'
DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST = 'imanudin.net'
VIRTUAL_HOSTS.clear()
add_virtualhost(DEFAULT_URL_HOST, DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST)

run the following command as root

cd /opt/zimbra/httpd/htdocs
mkdir mmimages
cp /usr/lib/mailman/icons/* mmimages/
chown -R zimbra:zimbra mmimages/
su - zimbra -c "zmapachectl restart"
 
cd /usr/lib/mailman
