Installing Zimbra Mailbox Server
The zimbra-store package can be installed with the LDAP server, the MTA server, or as a separate mailbox server. You can have more than one mailbox server and new mailbox servers can be added at any time.

Type 4 and set the password for the administrator account. The password is case sensitive and must be a minimum of six characters. During the install process, the admin account is provisioned on the mailbox store server. You log on to the administration console with this password.
Note: By default, the email addresses for the admin account, spam, non-spam, wiki are set to be the zimbra mailstore server address. You may want to change these to be the ZCS primary domain address instead. (example.com in this example)
Type the corresponding number if you want to change the default web server mode. The communication protocol options are HTTP, HTTPS, mixed, both or redirect.
Mixed mode uses HTTPS for logging in and HTTP for normal session traffic
Both mode means that an HTTP session stays HTTP, including during the login phase, and an HTTPS session remains HTTPS throughout, including the login phase.
Redirect mode redirects any users connecting via HTTP to a HTTPS connection.
All modes use SSL encryption for back-end administrative traffic.
If you install the zimbra spell package, it is installed on every mailstore. The http address for each is the mailstore server it is installed on host name.
Enable version update checks and Enable version update notifications are set to TRUE. ZCS automatically checks for the latest ZCS software updates and notifies the account that is configured in Version update notification email. You can modify this later from the administration console.
