    Default IMAP / POP Proxy

    I have a question about Zimbra's imap/pop proxy.

    We have email accounts with our ISP. Would Zimbra's imap/pop proxy be able to filter the incomming mail from out ISP?

    No, under no circumstances should you enable that feature if you have a single server. Perhaps if you decsribed what it is you are trying to do then someone may be able o help.

    Basically I have one Zimbra server running at home. We have two email accounts with our ISP.

    All I would like to do is run all email comming in from our two ISP email accounts through a spam filter before it arrives at its destination. I was assuming that might be possible with the Zimbra imap/pop proxy.

    The Zimbra proxy is just that, a proxy - it is not a filter.

    There is currently no facility to use the filters in Zimbra for mail that's fetched by the POP collector in Zimbra, there's an RFE in bugzilla for that feature to be added. If you use fetchmail to get your mail then the filters in Zimbra should be applied, IIRC.

    There's a tutorial in the forums and (possibly) the wiki. I prefer to use webmin to set-up things like fetchmail. You'll need to enter the email address and passwords for the remote server but as it's only a home system I guess that won't be a problem.

    ok, kewl... webmin RULES!
    So basically, Once I've done all i need to do with fetchmail, where would my users retreive their mail?
    I also take it that fatchmail will use zimbra's spam filters and such, ryt?

    Your users will get their mail from the Zimbra server, you can tell fetchmail to dump it in a user mailbox. Yes, it should go through the spam filters.
