    Welcome to the forums

    Would you be installing the community edition or network edition ?

    Will you be using SAN based storage ?

    What type of access will your users be making ? Web Client / Fat Client / IMAP / POP3

    You need to provide more detail before we would be able to help.

    If you look under the Installation topic on the forums this question has been asked many times.

    IMHO I think you would be looking at a two CPU dual core system with minimum 4GB RAM. Memory is pretty cheap these days so I would go with 8GB using the smallest memory modules. That way you can easily drop in another 8GB.

    Well that is dependant on the profile of the user; and difficult to answer. If they are using the advanced Ajax Web Client then most of the processing will be happening on their workstation (as it is a web based technology). The back end grunt work will be the processing of mail eg. av/as scanning, handling the mailstore, zimlets, tracking changes. etc etc etc. The more processing power you can give the better the experience, but the specs above I believe would provide a solid system. Dependant on how you are going to grow you may be better considering a small SAN now instead of later.

    well, it depends on your users' needs.
    In my company, our users only use imap,POP3 and SMTP (sometimes they use webclient) so with my server, we can serve for 500 accounts
    This is my server hardware (single install):
    cpu: xeon 4 cpu, dual core 2.0 GHz
    ram: 4GB
    Hardisk: a 36 GB hardisk and four 146 GB Hardisk
    OS : ubuntu 8.0.4 LTS 32-bit version
    ZCS: GA 6.0.1
