    Default Can I use SSL to authenticate users?

    My goal is to be able to hit the web portal via HTTPS rather than HTTP. I haven't forwarded my NAT yet because of this. My concern is that someone may grab my password if its being sent across the web in clear text.

    Any ideas?

    Basic Configuration

    The default port configurations are shown:
    •SMTP host
    •Web server HTTP port: 80
    •Web server HTTPS port: 443
    •Web server mode — Can be HTTP, HTTPS, Mixed, Both or Redirect.
    Mixed mode uses HTTPS for logging in and HTTP for normal session traffic
    Both mode means that an HTTP session stays HTTP, including during the login phase, and an HTTPS session remains HTTPS throughout, including the login phase.
    Redirect mode redirects any users connecting via HTTP to an HTTPS connection.

    So I think it should work right away.

    Easiest way to change is just to use zmtlsctl: CLI zmtlsctl to set Web Server Mode - Zimbra :: Wiki

    If you want to install a commercial certificate, have a search in the wiki. There's several examples there and the forums as well.
