    Default Zimbra with hosted provider

    I'm a Zimbra newbie and I've just set up a domain on a hosting provider before I decide to build my own.

    I am looking at the use of external email addresses through the Zimbra webclient. Two questions:

    1. Are the messages being retrieved locally and then placed on the server or from the hosting providers server?

    2. Can it be set up to automatically retrieve messages from external accounts?

    Thanks!

    Welcome to the forum.

    You should ask these questions to your Zimbra hosting provider (these features depends on hosting providers).

    Fair enough, but isn't at least #1 functionality the same regardless of who or where its hosted?

    I contacted the provider and they said that question #2 raised above was a feature that has not been added to the server but had been requested.

    Welcome to the forums,
    Ok so, account aggregation:
    -4.5.x supports external POP accounts in the web-client
    -5.0.x supports both external POP & IMAP accounts in the web-client (plus periodic checking - so you don't have to hit 'get mail')

    You can also vote for: Bug 22114 - Expose external account polling interval in UI

    Before you ask it can be set automatic but only by CLI/SOAP:
    su - zimbra
    zmprov mds user@domain.com [Data source external IMAP/POP account name] zimbraDataSourcePollingInterval 900s
    zimbraDataSourceMinPollingInterval is usually 60s or 1m or 2m & zimbraFeatureMailPollingIntervalPreferenceEnabled should be set to TRUE

    To cancel polling, set the attribute value to an empty string ("") or 0. Keep in mind that zimbraDataSourcePollingInterval gets inherited from the COS to the account to the data source. If a child object sets the value to "", it inherits the parent's value - if set to 0, it's turned off.

    So we know what version you're on - in the main search bar of the advanced (AJAX) web-client enter:
    $set:get version

    So it should work (as long as correctly setup)...

    It will work if you create another Outlook profile and ask to have to choose at Outlook's startup.
    All done in Control Panel -> Mail.
