    Default Zimbra in a shared hosted account?

    Hi there,
    A newbie here.

    I was wondering whether it is possible to install Zimbra (Community Ed) in a (shared) hosted account -which means I only have access to my account via FTP and I have no root access whatsoever.

    Also, I'd like to know how could I get Outlook support to the Community version without having to go to the Professional version. Is this possible?

    Thanks

    NO..you need full ROOT access to the server, you cannot instal zimbra on a shared hosting account

    You can use outlook as IMAP,POP3 and SMTP client with OSS version but it will not sync your calander and contacts..for that you need NE of Zimbra

    Thanks Raj for your quick answer...

    .... to bad I can't install this in my hosted server though!.

    Question: I know it might be politically incorrect but... would you know of any other (linux) substitute for MS Exchange that I could install without the need for having a root access?.

    Considering that you need root access to assign common ports used by mail servers/Exchange, highly unlikely any exist for that reason.
