    Default downloading emails using POP3 vs fetchmail

    Hello

    as I understand ZCS can be configured to download emails from our ISP for local
    delivery either using POP3 or fetchmail.

    Fetchmail seems to be much more complex to setup (that has to be considered because
    the faster our ZCS eva environment runs, the better.. But probably with the help
    of webmin, even I would be able to setup fetchmail properly :-)


    Questions:
    Is there a way to set setup a "global POP3 service" which downloads the mails
    of all users from our ISP mbox to our Zimbra mail server?


    Or ist POP3 not at all recommended for such/my an environment?




    Thank you very much for any clarification/help :-)

    John

    There is no support for that in Zimbra and it's only available on a per-mailbox basis, you'd be far better having the mail delivered directly to your Zimbra server.

    Plus, by using fetchmail the emails will be subject to AV/AS checking aswell

    Default must Webmin be installed on the same box as ZCS in order to configure fetchmail?

    Good to know those things, thank's a lot! It's pretty sure that I am going to install Web in order to configure Fetchmail, even I am not very exited to install
    such an apps on my Zimbra-box...


    Mabe it sounds strange, but is there a big advantag or even a must, that Webmin is installed on the same machine like ZCS?


    Thank's a lot!

    Personally I never use WebMin as I prefer to do it from the CLI and have full control over what is happening.

    Thanks for the help!
