2.
Type Y and press Enter to install the zimbra-mta package. The other packages should be marked N. In the following screen shot example, the package to be installed is emphasized.
Note: If you are installing zimbra-proxy, it is normally installed on the MTA server. Mark the zimbra-proxy package Y.
Note: If SNMP is used, it is installed on every server.
