    Default Mac mail.app: don't work outside the company

    At work we have a Zimbra server for mail.
    Mail on my mac in the office works, but at home it won't work on my iMac(s)/MacBook(s)
    All working on OSX 10.6.6

    I can't ask my admin, because I'm the only mac user...

    How to solve this?

    thanks a lot

    Marco

    What do you mean by 'it won't work'?

    Why not? That's what your Administrator is there to do, solve user problems.

    Indeed. As a guess, though, your server is firewalled off on the ports you need. Viz.

    ports 25, 465, and/or 487 to send mail.
    port 143/993 to retrieve mail over IMAP

    There are other ports for POP, but I don't recommend using it. IMAP is better if you're checking mail in multiple locations.

    But if it's a firewall issue, you won't get anywhere without talking to your network admin.
