    Hello, welcome to the forum.

    Zimbra is not meant so be run on Windows 2003.
    At all.

    You can run it inside a VMWare if you want.

    This product is nothing to do with Windows, it's a Linux and MAC product. Some of the components have ports to Windows but postfix (the MTA) doesn't, therefore it won't run on Windows.

    The Open Source version (there is a Network Edition for RHEL4, SLES9 & MAC OS X) available in Sourceforge are the only versions we supply, if you want to run it on any other platform you'd have to build it from source.

    But then does that mean Ajax client is not Windows based

    Am I right to say that I can have

    Server component - Linux/Mac based
    client component - ?? (Ajax - windows based) Is it realy required or just an Internet explorer based access is enough?
    MS Exchange server - mail MTA?
    MYSQL or SQL Server2000 - which Database required?
    MS exchange client

    Please verify this

    You should read a bit more the official website (and all docs available).

    Zimbra is a all in one collaboration suite : it's not just a web interface (webmail).

    You can run the client in IE6 or FF on a windows system.

    It's not a package that can be split, it ALL runs on a linux server and you access it with the web client from any PC using your browser. Please read the documentation and features list to get an idea of what Zimbra is.

    I doubt it very much and I wouldn't even bother trying. If you really want to run a test of Zimbra then download the VMware appliance or install it in a VM. You can get VMware Server for free from www.vmware.com - Zimbra does require a lot of dedicated memory, you'll need at least 1GB for the VM and possibly more plus good spec hardware.

    If you wnat to see what Zimbra is like there's always the demo on the main zimbra site at www.zimbra.com
