    Default subdomains and installation

    I have a web server located elsewhere on it's own IP address using my main domain name, eg, hxxp://mydomainname.com

    I have my own mail server located at another IP address (home)

    I have MX records setup for mydomainname.com which point to mail.mydomainname.com, which (obviously in turn) has an A record pointing back to mydomainname.com

    Clear as mud? :-)

    When setting up the zimbra server, should I be giving it an internal server name of mail.mydomainname.com or mydomainname.com?

    The answer depends on whether you're converting from your current mail server, running Zimbra + your current server or just testing Zimbra - you might want to start with this article.

    I will be running zimbra alone (ie, ditching my current server), both of which are installed here - which is making testing a real PITA! ie, I can't afford for my current server to go down while I am setting up Zimbra. But once it is up, my old one will be turned off.

    I've just had a brief peruse of the link, and I can see how I can make this work in the short term for testing - thanks. I'll investigate that further.

    But as for setting up zimbra (which is physically at the same location - ie behind the same firewall as my existing server), should I set it up with mail.my.com or just my.com? My other server is at an alternate.com, so there are no issues there
