I'm almost sure that the perfect answer to my question is: rtfm, but still...
I'd like to use the ZCS in my organisation and so I installed everything
on my Ubuntu 8.04. The installation worked out fine, I am able to create
domains and local accounts and so on.
In my organisation, an LDAP server exists allowing user authentification. A
mailserver (IMAP/POP incoming and, of course, SMTP outgoing) also exists,
where each user has an address like firstname.lastname@example.org
Now: How should my configuration in general look like to
- use LDAP for authentification (well, o.k., I know how to do that)
- use the already existing IMAP folders from within zimbra so that
the INBOX folder from my mailserver is the INBOX folder for Zimbra
- let users use the SMTP server to send all the mail in such a way
that their sender address is email@example.com and not (as it is now)
In other words: I'd like to use Zimbra for the collaboration but our
mailserver for the communication. Is this possible?
Thanks a lot,
p.s.: I should say that both the LDAP server and the mail server are
not under my control ;-)
