    Default Noob - good install, probs after

    The quick start says you are prompted to set the admin password during install. I didn't get this prompt. Is there a default root username/password I can use to log in?
    Also, I can't connect to the admin console. Should I look for anything besides firewall/blocked port stuff? Many thanks in advance.

    CentOS 4 final
    AMD 1.73 ghz
    1 gb Ram
    SELinux Off
    no error flags during install
    Zimbra Open Source

    Hi

    Welcome to the forums.

    You could look to see if postfix and/or Apache is running. Your install probably didn't go too well, is there anything in the logs?
    Regards

    Default baby steps

    I have the admin panel and regular login working fine, thanks to your help. I am having big problems with the mail. Has anybody here ever set up a subdomain redirect to the zimbra server and configured mail? Any help or docs you could point me to would be great. Thanks again.
    I am editing in another important note: port 25 is cool, in use only by zimbra. Outgoing mail to other servers, ie gmail, works fine also. Thanks guys.

    What do you mean by a subdomain redirect? Do you mean accept a subdomain on the zimbra server?
    Regards

    Default subdomain

    by subdomain, I mean that I set up a subdomain on my webserver (hosted elsewhere), and set it to forward to my zimbra machine's ip. Then, I set the mail for that subdomain (hosted elsewhere) to be forwarded to my zimbra machine's ip on port 25. Sorry I wasn't very clear earlier. This could be the wrong thing to set up completely, and I am clueless about MX records, but I hope you guys can help me make some sense of it.

    I'd be tempted to use fetchmail to collect the subdomain mail on the hosted server.

    Who's hosting the subdomain MX records? I'm also assuming that you have the subdomain set-up in zimbra?
    Regards

    Default fetchmail

    Bill,
    What is this fetchmail of which you speak? Sounds like a convenient workaround. I'll google for docs, but if you have used this with zimbra before, any advice would be greatly appreciated. The mx records are hosted by my server ISP, with whom I have a reseller acct and private dns. I do have the subdomain setup (as best I can) in zimbra. Thanks.

    There's several threads in the forum about fetchmail, this is the one that describes how to set it up. Being a linux novice, I use webmin to manage my server and it has a nice module for setting up fetchmail. If you don't know webmin you can find it at www.webmin.com

    If you have the subdomain set-up in zimbra with the same account names (or aliases) then fetchmail should drop the mail in the correct mailboxes.
