    Default how to configure a Zimbra account on a Mac without admin privileges

    My email on Zimbra is gionata.ronchi@dahilatv.it and I want to be able to see my email with the same folders as I see in Zimbra on my notebook too.

    My notebook is a Macbook Pro and I can't install Zimbra Desktop because it tells that it requires administrator privileges that I don't have (and I can't have).

    How can I do? I can for example configure the Mail app. to use IMAP but what is the server address for it? is it provided by Zimbra or by my email provider dahliatv.it?

    Thanks in advance for the help

    Diego, how are you getting your Zimbra email now? With a web browser?

    Yes, I login in the Zimbra website I see it there (web).

    Based on mx (mail exchanger) records, you probably want to use mail.dahliatv.it as your IMAP and SMTP server in Mail.app

    I see that Zimbra is accessible on the web via http(s)://mail.dahliatv.it so that further confirms it.

    I believe it's possible for Zimbra's http and IMAP/POP addresses to be different, but in your case, I doubt it, because as a final check, I observed that mail.dahliatv.it has IMAP/POP/SMTP ports open.

    (BTW, this thread belongs in the Users subforum.)
