    Question New Zimbra Fan

    New to Zimbra. Appreciate if someone can point me to the right direction. I need to answer the following;

    Which install file is the correct one to use if I'm looking at the open source version.

    Anyone know of any revised installation steps guide that I can easily follow thru?

    I intend to go with Ubuntu 8.04, my RHEL has expired.

    Unhappy New Zimbra Fan...con't

    gone thru the setup and hit the following;

    when typing 'su - zimbra' it asks for a password. i tried the admin password i used for the setup but no joy...

    also when giving the 'zmcontrol status' command, it comes up saying;
    -bash: zmcontrol: command not found

    makes me wonder if i'm on the right track (correct install files, setup steps)?

    appreciate any feedback from anyone...

    Login as root an then type su - zimbra.

    You have to run zmcontrol as user zimbra

    If you're more used to RHEL then you might like to consider installing the RHEL version of Zimbra on CentOS 5.4, it works a treat. Have you installed a Zimbra server before? If not and you're on a LAN you'll need a Split DNS set-up and you should ensure your server meets the required specifications.

    su - zimbra asks for a password. should it or should it not? i don't know what password to use. where should i check?

    i have install zimbra only once just after i posted my question on the forum and managed to get the webmail working. something happened and i saw in the logs that mta wasn't running. i didn't want to go through trouble shooting and since this is a new install, i opted for re-installation of zimbra... then i now noted the following message during the install process;

    Checking for port conflicts
    Port conflict detected: 25 (zimbra-mta)
    Port conflicts detected! - Any key to continue

    Anyways, I'm downloading Centos 5.4 now and will try on another machine.

    If you're still using ubuntu, then do a sudo su - zimbra and when it asks for your password, enter the password for your user account.

    my bad, forgot the sudo... i'm able to su - zimbra now..

    i did a zmcontrol status and noted that all of the services have been stopped. i issued the restart command and they all came back up again, except for the mta which still has the 'stopped' status.

    netstat -an indicated ports 25 and 110 as follows;
    tcp 0 0 127.0.0.1:25 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN
    tcp 0 0 127.0.0.1:110 127.0.0.1:33205 TIME_WAIT

    from the host, i performed telnet to port 12 and port 110 and they came up as follows;

    zimbra@mailserver:~$ telnet localhost 25
    Trying 127.0.0.1...
    Connected to localhost.
    Escape character is '^]'.
    220 mailserver.ourtelekom.net.sb ESMTP Exim 4.69 Thu, 18 Feb 2010 20:02:50 +1100

    zimbra@mailserver:~$ telnet localhost 110
    Trying 127.0.0.1...
    Connected to localhost.
    Escape character is '^]'.
    +OK POP3 ready

    Any clues, further tests/checks i need to do?

    Here's a clue, Zimbra uses Postfix as it's MTA not Exim.

    It seems that some service ports are conflicting please disable any other mta than postfix.and then restart your zimbra server .
