    Zimbra 8 using https by default but you can also modify it's setting to one of the following options : http, https, bith, mixed, redirect

    Code:
    su - zimbra
    zmtlsctl both
    http - http only, the user would browse to http://zimbra.domain.com

    https - https only, the user would browse to https://zimbra.domain.com http:// is denied.

    both - A user can go to http:// or https:// and will keep that mode for their entire session.

    mixed - If the user goes to http:// it will switch to https:// for the login only, then will revert to http:// for normal session traffic. If they browse to https:// then they will stay https://

    redirect - Like mixed if the user goes to http:// it will switch to https:// but they will stay https:// for their entire session.

    Hello.

    IDK if the default settings have changed, but I suggest to ceheck out the docs for info about the webserver mode: CLI zmtlsctl to set Web Server Mode - Zimbra :: Wiki. I suggest using "mixed" or even better "redirect": your users won't have to change any bookmark but you will still provide them with a secure service.
    See ya,
    Mike

    I seem to always get the certificate error with https, it is ok with Firefox and thunderbird access, but IE complains all the time so I just switched it back to http.

    You got certificate error because using self-signed SSL certificate. Using commercial SSL certificate (some SSL certificate only a few $/year) will solved your problem on https error message (in case you would like to switch into redirect, both or https again ).

    Thanks Masim, I understand that, but for as few people as we have I find it difficult to justify spending money on a cert.

    Copy your CA cert from your Zimbra installation and install it as a root certificate in Internet Explorer. IE will quit complaining until it expires. Then recreate and install again.
