    You don't need different IP addresses for a mail server and a web server on the same machine if your DNS records (external and internal) are correct, you also need Zimbra to listen on a different prot for the web UI (you do have it set to HTTPS, don't you?). You need to provide some diagnostic information on your external and internal DNS records, for your internal records go to the Split DNS article and post the output of all the commands in the 'Verify...' section.

    Then what was the point in describing the fact that you're using two IP addresses?

    Your problem has been asked and answered many times in the forums, if you're behind a NAT router you'll need to forward the relevant port to the Zimbra server and you'll need to set-up a Split DNS. If you're not receiving mail then one or both of those is not set-up correctly. You can also look in the log files for further details on the erros and you should also read some of the many posts in the forum that discuss the solution to this problem. My previous comment about providing information on this problem still stand, I haven't learned to be a mind reader this year.
