    Default authentication from different server

    I was wanting to know if this setup was possible with zimbra? Right now we have our primary mail server running Qpopper for our customers using Outlook and Eudora and a secondary mail server running @mail for our webmail access. The way this is set up is that the primary server receives all of our email and allows access for our customers using Outlook or Eudora. The webmail server only downloads the email from the primary server if a user logs in through webmail. When a user logs in through webmail the webmail server leaves a copy on the primary server because some users use both Outlook and webmail. Also if a user deletes a message through their webmail account it will also delete the message from the primary server running Qpopper. The user authentication for the webmail server is handled by our primary mail server running Qpopper. Is there anyone who is running a configuration similar to this with Zimbra and if not does anyone have any pointers on how to begin. This is about as much as I know about the current setup as this was put into service by the previous network admins. If this is not possible will it be possible in future revisions of Zimbra.

    Well if you were to mirgrate to Zimbra you'd replace both Qpopper and @mail. Zimbra would be your primary mailstore which serves POP and IMAP and also handle your webmail needs. There would be no duplicate copies of mail like you have now since Zimbra webclient can access the same store as the POP/IMAP clients.

    What I was intending to do was keep everything the same as it is but just replace the @mail webmail server with Zimbra.

    Zimbra is not a webmail replacement only. Unless you setup fetchmail or the likes to forward your mail to it. It expects to be the mail backend not just the webclient.
