    Default Not Advisable

    An employee might be able to help you better but...

    Zimbra seems to install everything in a chroot environment. It also installs it's own modified version of all these packages.

    Even if Webmin were to work, it would very likely come with a large deal of bugs.

    In addition, "su - zimbra" will give you the ability to tweak almost everything about zimbra. It's just a matter of finding out what you need to do and what command to execute.

    Exclamation Why I need Webmin

    Users are not IT geeks, all they want is a user friendly interface, which webmin gives you. It will used for other day to day administration of the Zimbra server.
    Please let me know your opinion.

    Yes, webmin will work on a zimbra server.

    You wont have any control over the Zimbra specific functions though, but you will have control over the linux distro.
