    Default Zimbra and Joomla Project

    This was all a bit of an experiment. What I wanted to do was to have a Server out there that would hold all my e-mail, directly sent to the domain and also collected from other POP3/IMAP e-mail accounts. I also wanted to be able to scan all this e-mail for spam and viruses. I also wanted a quick and cheap setup. First I found Zimbra, which I use to hold the e-mail (and much more). Then I found vpslink and got myself a Fedora Core 7 XEN Virtual Machine. Loaded Zimbra pre-requisites and Zimbra then added some outside-of-Zimbra Apache for this front end and then found Joomla to add to the mix. Joomla gave me the glue to hang it all together.

    Three cheers for Zimbra / Joomla integration!

    What would be really cool would be an admin extension for Zimbra that would allow you to provision web hosting space for sites similar to how Virtualmin works. I think it wouldn't be that hard since Zimbra does most of this when you set up a new domain anyhow... Then you would have a nice front end to manage both mail and web hosting all in one sweet Zimbrariffic package.

    What do you mean about Joomla integration? Can you give some more information?

    Thank you.

    I have been working on a number of Joomla extensions that allow a Joomla web site to use a number of Zimbra facilities. EG. when a Joomla account is created a Zimbra mailbox can be created automatically. For more information have an look at my site All Our EMail - Home

    I saw Joomla and it looked neat, but I didn't know you could create such extensions. Maybe I should re-visit that idea.

    I need to post news or announcement message for my users, like in a web portal. Do you think Joomla has potential to do that?

    Thank you.

    Yes Joomla is certainly the tool for that.

    I mean, can I use Joomla to post news message and display it on Zimbra?

    That depends on what you mean by that. If you mean post to usenet/NNTP from Joomla and view in Zimbra then I think the current answer is that Zimbra currently does not support NNTP. If you mean, for example, create a Shared Zimbra Document from Joomla, that could be done using some PHP code and Zimbra's SOAP API, but that would need PHP code writing.

    Thank you.

    Perhaps the shared document is a potential solutio for me.
