    Default Migrating from potsfix to zimbra on the same machine

    Hi all,

    I am intending to migrate my old postfix mail server to a new zimbra configuration. I have read threads about doing this with imapsync. But I was wondering if it is possible to do this on the same machine.
    I assume that it will be port conflicts problems even during the installation, but if there is a way to perform that it would be really great.

    Any suggestions ?

    Cheers
    Nacef

    It's not possible to install Zimbra & postfix on the same machine as they both use port 25, the only way to do it would be to install Zimbra in a VM (the VMware Server is free).

    Is it possible to change the ports (postfix and imap) for my current postfix server and then install Zimbra side by side with my old postfix with its default ports. And then import all my mails with imapsync.

    My postfix is using Maildir so I also thought about using zmprov addMessage. I thought about stopping my postfix server, installing Zimbra and then importing the messages with a perl script.

    Wanted also to know if importing with imapsync or addMessage keeps the flags (seen, ...) of the imported messages.

    Thanks to all,
    Nacef
