    Default Installing Zimbra on a Server with 2 IPs

    Hello All,

    I want to install Zimbra on a server with 1 Live IP and I local IP. How do I go about it. How do I secure the server since it is not going to be behind a firewall. More so, what security measure I am going to take to make sure my server is safe.
    This installation is necessary because we need to get our Intranet mails on the fly when such mail is very important and needs our attention.

    Kindly help.

    thanks.

    Popsicles.

    Not a good idea.

    Put it behind a NAT router or firewall.

    I don't quite understand what you mean by that statement. Why do you think that having your ZImbra server behind a NAT router or firewall means you can't get your email?

    Thanks Phoenix for your reply.
    One more question.
    Some member of staff use smartphones and they want to be able to retrieve intranet (Internal mails) on the fly when they are not in the office. How will this work?

    It makes no difference whether the mail is 'internal' or 'external' it is just email in the users mailbox - any client can connect to the Zimbra server and retrieve mail via the Web UI, IMAP(S) or POP3(S), take your pick.
