    Default Push Mail

    Hi

    I am using the free version of zimbra at present. In the next year or so when money is available I will be using the paid version and will get sync mail. Is there any 3rd party product I can use in the interim on the free version to push email

    Thanks

    Im writing up a blog page for how to use Z-push and Z-push zimbra backend, will post on here when complete. I have my iphone syncing contacts/calendar and push email using 'activesync' - few bugs, but works well enough for me and no Network Edition license cost!

    In the mean time, search for the above in google

    Should be tomorrow when finished, however if you wish to have a shot on your own:

    Z-Push - open source push technology

    Z-Push Zimbra Backend | Get Z-Push Zimbra Backend at SourceForge.net

    Thanks

    @IMX

    I found your blog a few days ago. Very good stuff. OSS 6.05 64 bit

    I checked out from subversion 1.3RC2 v18 ... I know you had problems with this and stepped back to 16 but I might be a little more hard headed. Anyhow ...

    here is my secure vhost ... 5th one and all work perfectly.

    <VirtualHost *:443>
    SuexecUserGroup "#1003" "#1004"
    ServerName sync.xxxxx.com:443
    Alias /Microsoft-Server-ActiveSync /var/www/z-push/index.php
    GnuTLSEnable on
    GnuTLSPriorities NORMAL:!AES-256-CBC:!DHE-RSA
    GnuTLSCertificateFile /etc/pki_custom/tls/certs/sync.xxxx.com.crt
    GnuTLSKeyFile /etc/pki_custom/tls/private/sync.xxxx.com.key
    DocumentRoot /var/www/port.0443/z-push.xxxx.com
    ServerAdmin accounts@xxxx.com
    </VirtualHost>

    I commented out part of the domain names to protect the innocent.

    Do I even need a Document root for this setup?

    So there is a tip for some of you that want to do ssl virtual hosting! gnutls works very very well.

    Next when I surf to https://sync.xxxx.com/Microsoft-Server-ActiveSync
    - i get a login request, so i provide a valid login id and receive this

    GET not supported

    This is the z-push location and can only be accessed by Microsoft ActiveSync-capable devices.

    So this seems to be working properly.

    Question: What is the SuexecUserGroup "#1003" "#1004" for?

    Now for the tough stuff.

    When I first set up my palm pre EAS (active sync) my phone blocked me saying invalid cert (self signed) so I followed the Palm instruction on how to add the certificate to my phones root.

    my EAS login request looks like this

    email addy: xxxxx@xxxx.com
    incoming mail server: https://sync.xxxx.com/
    domain:
    username: xxxxx@xxxx.com
    password: ********

    @ login i was getting server not reachable, and i realized the first time I tried this I had a keying error on https://sync.xxx.com/

    Drove me nuts when I realized the keying error, fixed it but still got the server not reachable error. So after spending hours pulling my hair out (yeah I still have a full head at my age) I slept on.

    Came back at it today, cleared my palm pre cache and sync baby sync, very sweet.

    Now I am sitting here looking at funambol saying that beast looks useful for one thing, blackberries. A nice OSS project for blackberry J2ME activesync would make the world that much sweeter.

    Cheers to you, vooba and gnosbush.

    PS. Will report back later to the accuracy of the items loaded in mail, contacts and calendar.

    You wont need that, its just for my setup so i can have CGI based stuff running as the user account:

    mod_suexec - Apache HTTP Server

    OK, I am going to delete.

    Any comment on "Do I need DocumentRoot in my vhost"?
