    Default configure zimbra http for cgi

    Hello,
    I use Zimbra 7.1. I configured fetchmail that every 10 minutes downloads all emails from the remote server to my zimbra server.

    However I would like to use a cgi script that the user can start and thus download emails as he wants. I configured /opt/zimbra/httpd/conf/httpd.conf and put the script into /opt/zimbra/httpd/cgi-bin. However if I write an url - http://local.zimbra.com/cgi-bin/download it displays that the url was not found.

    Please, can you help me how to configure zimbra http to use cgi?

    Thanks
    Libor

    Why don't you get the email delivered directly to your server, it's a much more sensible solution.

    You should not modify those configuration files, they would not survivie an upgrade even if you get them working.

    What's wrong with your current solution, why don't you get the users to use the External Accounts feature available in every accounts Preferences?

    To tell the truth I would like to, but I do not know how. All emails sent to mydomain.com arrive to the external email server of mydomain.com provider. And I download the emails from this server to my zimbra server.
    If you can help me howto configure so that email would be downloaded immeaditelly after they arrive to the external email server I would be grateful.

    What do you mean by that? What feature?

    Thank you a lot

    If 'mydomain.com' is a real domain that you use then you just point the DNS A & MX records to your public IP address (you do have one of those, don't you?).

    There is no facility to download the email immediately.

    The "External Accounts" feature, read about it in the Product Documentation or look in the user Preferences under Accounts.

    You will still be better off having your mail delivered directly to your server, you should look at doing that before using external accounts or fetchmail.
