Zimbra Mailbox Server

Zimbra Mailbox Server
The Zimbra mailbox server is a dedicated server that manages all of the mailbox content, including messages, contacts, calendar, Briefcase files and attachments.
Messages are received from the Zimbra MTA server and then passed through any filters that have been created. Messages are then indexed and deposited into the correct mailbox.
Each Zimbra mailbox server in the system can see only its own storage volumes. Zimbra mailbox servers cannot see, read, or write to another server.
In a ZCS single-server environment, all services are on one server, and during installation the computer is configured to partition the disk to accommodate each of the services.
In a ZCS multi-server environment, the LDAP and MTA services can be installed on separate servers. See the Multi-Server Installation Guide.
