    Default Install different components of Zimbra separately?

    Is it possible to break a zimbra installation into different components on separate hardware? Say one box just contains smtp, one contains mx server and the last one acts as the mailbox server which runs all the pop, imap services?

    Yes, this is completely possible and recommended (provided you have the hardware and require the scalability.)

    Install MTA on the SMTP server (I'm assuming you want to use this as outbound)

    Install MTA on MX (this would be your incoming mail server)

    Install LDAP/Mailbox, etc on the mailbox server.

    This is pretty similar to the configuration I have.

    HTH

    Please read the Multi-Server Installation Guide.
