When sending mail from a host behind NAT, you will run into trouble when the "From" says "firstname.lastname@example.org", because receiving servers will refuse that domain.

When you want to use your IMAP account as authentication for Postfix, you can set the SASL mechanism to "rimap". However, by default, it will not supply the realm (domain) and therefore will authenticate with an incomplete username (john instead of email@example.com).

These are some short stepts and pointers to setup a postfix fallback MX. It does not describe postfix basics, nor how to install Mailscanner (a necessisity, because spammers like sending spam to fallback MX's because they're usually not as well protected).

(This turned out not to be how I fixed it. I just configured exim and /etc/mailname as I do always and that fixed it. However, exim does not run as the SMTP server listening on port 25, that is the postfix installed by Zimbra. I don't know how and if this exim configuration conflicts with zimbra.)
