Zimbra Mailbox Server Configuration Options
These options are configured on the Zimbra Mailbox server.
The following table describes the Zimbra Mailbox server menu options.
Zimbra Mailbox Server
Create Admin User - The administrator account is created during installation. This account is the first account provisioned on the Zimbra server and allows you to log on to the administration console.
Admin user to create - The user name assigned to the administrator account. Once the administrator account has been created, it is suggested that you do not rename the account as automatic ZCS notifications might not be received.
Admin Password - You must set the admin account password. The password is case sensitive and must be a minimum of six characters. The administrator name, mail address, and password are required to log in to the administration console.
Anti-virus quarantine user - A virus quarantine account is automatically created during installation. When AmivisD identifies an email message with a virus, the email is automatically sent to this mailbox. The virus quarantine mailbox is configured to delete messages older than 7 days.
Enable automated spam training - By default, the automated spam training filter is enabled and two mail accounts are created.
1 -Spam training user to receive mail notification about mail that was not marked as junk, but should be.
2 -Non-spam (HAM) training user to receive mail notification about mail that was marked as junk, but should not have been.
These addresses are automatically configured to work with the spam training filter. The accounts created have a randomly selected name. To recognize what the account is used for you may want to change this name.
