    Thumbs up Postmaster replacement with zimbra

    Hi,

    Can we replace the postmaster process with Zimbra ?

    We need to use zimbra for the place of postmaster work.

    Postmaster v 4.3, Is it possible to use zimbra like this way ?

    If so, please explain the process ?

    Thanks,

    The usual reason for no replies is a lack of information in your post, I have absolutely no idea what you're asking nor what you're trying to do nor even what 'Postmaster' is.

    BTW, you should wait a bit longer that three hours for a reply before posting a follow-up (and the follow-up should only be to give further information) and why is this thread in the Developers forum?
    Regards

    I will explain in-detail :

    "In the present setup, we have Postmaster Version 4.3 which pulls mails from mail server hosted by our Service Provider at mx.domainname.com. The Postmaster software pulls all the emails from this server and users read their email from this server on the LAN. Outgoing emails are routed to smtp.domainname.com which is again handled by the Postmaster software.

    The requirement is to replace the Postmaster Server with a Zimbra server which will act as a frontend instead of directly receiving the emails. Is this possible and if so, how to accomplish the same?

    Thanks in advance"

    This is no Problem. You have an Option for Pulling the mail.
    1.Run Fetchmail
    2.Configure individual mail a/c to pul mail from service provider.

    Also u need to have non-windows Platform, to Run Zimbra.

    The simle answer is yes, you can do that. Why can't you have the email delivered directly to your server? Using Fetchmail you can do it (search the forums for the word 'fetchmail) but it's not ideal and does have problems, you can also use the external account feature in the user preferences to get their mail.

    We have two option, One is Direct installation with zimbra as a complete mail server, Another one is use Zimbra as replacement of Postmaster..

    Which is safe ?

    I'm not sure what you mean by this, Zimbra is a complete mailserver.

    That should be fine but you must investigate the feasibility of that yourself.
