    Default [SOLVED] Zimbra Appliance Different AD and email Domains

    I'm having difficulty installing the appliance - I think it's because our AD Domain has a different name than our email domain. Can you still install the free appliance if you have different domain names? Thank you in advance for your comments.

    You can install it with any domain name as long as there are DNS A & MX records (for that domain) pointing at the Zimbra server.

    Thanks but it seems that when I give the server a name on our AD domain like zimbra.domain.local during the installation, all the email address that get created have that same domain extension. steve@domain.local when I really need steve@wyodiamond.com for example.

    They will do.

    Then create a valid domain plus DNS records for that domain. If this is your current AD domain and you already have a mail server then review the Split Domain article in the wiki.
