    Default setting up email server with external web host

    I'm working on a proposal to set up a new Zimbra server. The organization owns the domain already and has a website hosted elsewhere. I have a basic working knowledge about DNS, domain registration, hosting and so on, but here is my question.

    What all do I need to do to keep the external web host working but have emails go to the facility's email server?

    As a background we have static external IPs, a cyberoam firewall appliance that can do DMZ, internally there is an AD server which does DNS and DHCP.

    I will have more questions later, I'm sure, but I didn't see this particular scenario discussed before. I want to make sure I don't have to take in the website as well!

    Feel free to simply point me to whatever documentation will walk me through this, any help is appreciated.

    There is absolutely no connection between the two products if you set-up the normal A & MX records for the mail server pointing at whatever IP address the you have for the server.
