    Default MultiServer Setup

    Hello There,

    I am the systems administrator for a medical company in South Africa.

    We are currently using a Exim Set up with 3 boxes, each located in our 3 branches connected via a VPN.

    Each server hosts that branches email locally.

    I would like to keep the existing infrastructure, however I would like to replace the Exim boxes with Zimbra Open Source.
    I have installed a single instance of Zimbra and placed in production.

    I would like to know if there are any specific How to Guides or additional steps that I would need to set up.

    Best Regards,
    Dylan

    Why?

    Wouldn't it make your life less complicated to have one central server (and a backup elsewhere in case of problems) rather than your current configuration?

    If you really want to keep your current set-up then read the wiki article on Split Domain configuration.

    Hi Bill,

    Thank you for the response. Can you perhaps suggest a Zimbra Config that would work in the Scenario.
    Perhaps this is a good opportunity to change the current config as I inherited this when I started here.

    We currently have 3 branches connected via VPN below:

    HO - 8MB 1:1 Link Approx 220 Mail users
    Branch 1 : 2MB 1:1 Link to HO 70 Mail Users
    Branch 2 : 2MB 1:1 Link to HO 40 Mail Users

    Public internet Access is currently 10MB from the VPN. Hosted there is a spam server that currently routes the mail to our HO box which filters the mail to the branch offices.

    Can you recommend a better config with Zimbra?

    Thank you.

    Best Regards,
    Dylan

    As Bill said, make the setup less complicated by putting everything at one place. If you want to segregate components then consider following multinode scenario with split domain.

    Machine 1 : LDAP
    Machine 2 : Mailbox1(Logger, Mailbox, MTA)
    Machine 3 : Mailbox2(Mailbox)
    Machine 4 : Proxy(Proxy+Memcached)

    Above consideration could vary depending upon your requirement. Zimbra FOSS does not offer backup solution (Comparison document) so you need rely on thirdparty like Zextras backup.
