    Default Zimbra = server + Ajax client + support for other clients

    The title of your posting asks, "is zimbra a server or just a client?"
    The answer is both -- please see here for a full listing of product features

    Yes, see this posting: Hosting enviroment

    Depending on what capabilities you want in your hosted offering, you might be able to use our Open Source version, or you might want our Zimbra Network version which will be released with several weeks. Details on both versions are here: What's in the Open Source Edition vs. Network Standard Edition

    We don't have this as a built in feature, but it should be very easy to build a page using the comand line or SOAP API to create accounts for users.

    do you know php? if you do you can use the nusoap library to call the associated SOAP API functions (documentation on these SOAP calls are avail. with the source code).

    or if your server allows the php shell_exec function you can call zmprov from your php page.

    you should be able to use either method with any other web-based scripting language such as perl, python, asp, etc. im simply using php as an example. hope this helps.
