I've read the Multi-server installation guide and searched the forums, but haven't found any info on this subject. For performance reasons I'd like to have our LAN/WAN users be able to use the Zimbra Web Client via regular http connections; and for security reasons I want people connecting up from the Internet to use secure (https) connections. A user could be connecting up both internally or externally, so it's not like I want some users on one server and others on another. The way I would envision it, ideally I would have one main full-blown Zimbra server with all the mailboxes, and then another basically acting like a secure proxy server.
Is what I'm looking for even possible with Zimbra, or am I out of luck? I tried playing around with installing Zimbra on a second server last night but I didn't like some of things I was seeing, so I stopped. Even though I had done a backup of the production Zimbra server prior to starting, I didn't feel like risking an all-nighter getting this back to normal.
