    Default remote IMAP server - courier-imap

    Hello,

    Could I use an existing remote non Zimbra IMAP server for the mail dirs?

    I have an existing courier-imap server on our internal network, I like the Zimbra interface and would like to use it as a web mail front end, to send mail and view IMAP folders on a remote server only. I'd like to set up a machine in the DMZ with a Zimbra install and allow it to access IMAP dirs on the server within the internal network.

    any pointers or comments would be appreciated. thanks!

    Hi

    Welcome to the forums.

    This question has been asked and answered several times in the forums. I'm afraid the answer is no, you can't use another mail server instead of Zimbra.

    Zimbra is a complete package providing mail services and collaboration etc., you can use other clients with Zimbra if you wanted. You could convert your current system to Zimbra and inport mail into it via something like IMAPSYNC.
    Regards
