    Default A couple of newbie questions - reply attribution, SSL and domain best practice

    Hello,

    I'm new to the world of Zimbra (OS Edition), having spent a lot of time in the world of Google Apps. There are a couple of issues that I was wondering can be customised:

    1) Is there any way of changing the reply attribution - either as administrator or as a user - so that:

    ----- "User's Name" <useremail@address.co.uk> wrote:

    can be formatted differently, and possibly include the date and time of the original message that's being replied to, was sent?

    2) Can the standard user login use SSL? Is there a way of generating a self-signed certificate or installing a purchased certificate through the admin console?

    3) What's a good best practice approach for setting up new Zimbra servers? I've used mail.domainname.co.uk as the initial hostname, but added an additional domain, domainname.co.uk and added standard users under for which will act as the primary domain name for the server. Is this okay, or should I change mail.domainname.co.uk through the command line script?

    Many thanks,

    Martyn

    We don't use a 'wrote' like google does we show the headers - which have the time.

    (I just tested in ZD to double check we didn't use a custom hack for gmail accounts.)

    Or are you asking for 'user wrote:' instead? Or to customize it, such as always removing the To: & Subject: fields?

    CLI zmtlsctl to set Web Server Mode - Zimbra :: Wiki
    (https, both, mixed, redirect will use a self signed - no need to manually generate one)
    But for the future, if you want different subjectAltNames, renew/change length, or commercial: Administration Console and CLI Certificate Tools - Zimbra :: Wiki

    That's fine.
    Might set zmprov mcf zimbraDefaultDomainName domain.com

    (I can bore you with benefits of one way or the other if you really want.)
