    Default Limiting Installation to 1 IP Address

    Good Evening.
    Looking to start from a fresh install of Zimbra. The server i have currently has two IP's. I would like to limit zimbra to use only one of them. At the moment I'm having trouble finding a flag or setting which specifies which address I'd like to bind Zimbra to upon installation. Help would be appreciated. Thank you =)

    So you're saying i need to manually comment out my hosts file to the IP addresses I'd like it to bind to prior to the install?

    Seems a little strange to be honest

    Zimbra mta binds to all IP address it finds in the server. No way to change this. A lot of people have asked for this option since v5 days (maybe earlier). Zimbra support and docs suggests to install into a VM with 1 IP for a workaround to solve this issue.

    The product documentation also states that you should not install other servers on the same hardware as Zimbra, it's meant to be used for Zimbra only. You can, of course, vote for any of the RFEs in bugzilla for this 'problem'.
