    Default Job/service to copy IP of Zimbra server to www.ourcompany.com

    Hi,

    we intend to install Zimbra in a test environment behind a firewall in a DynDNS domain with NAT.
    Do to different reasons, we will receive and send our mails through an ISP (external mail domain).


    External users should be able to access the Zimbra-server by typing www.ourcompany.com/mail (www.ourcompany.com is hosted extenally)




    Therefore we are contemplating to install/run a service or cron job on the Zimbra-server to send the IP (of the Zimbra-server) to www.ourcompany.com


    Question:
    Is that a good idea or do we miss something?


    Thank's a lot for any feedback!

    If you can add a DNS entry for mail.ourcompany.com then you may find that's a simpler solution. Point the www records at the host and the mail record at your zimbra server.

    Thank's a lot for the helpful informations. Sounds to be a smart approach :-)

    The only problem is that I still have to learn a lot about DNS in order to be able to do it myself..

    Could you point me to a helpful HowTo (i do know the Zimbra split_dns howto a litle bit), or could probably
    yourself describe the procedure a little bit more detailled?


    Thank's a lot for any help!

    If you are behind a NAT device then the Split DNS article is what you need, there's also this article on DNS or search the forums for 'DNS in a Nutshell' for a similar description of split dns.
