    Default Zimbra v/s Windows Server 2003

    Hi All,

    I apologize because i don't know if someone else has already posted the same subject; i am a new user and i wasn't able to read all the posts.

    I'm interested in buying the Zimbra webmail system, I have windows 2003 server installed on my mail server.

    I couldnít find specification for Zimbra system integrated on windows while browsing through your website. Is that possible? Or Zimbra system can only be installed on Unix and Mac operating systems?

    Suppose we install the Zimbra webmail on a separate Unix or Mac system, can the Zimbra system interact with Microsoft s active directory (AD / LDAP)?

    Iím mostly interested in authenticating my domain users to access Zimbra online webmail, is that possible?

    Could any one please provide me with some details?

    Thank you in advance.

    Regards,

    Elie Wakim

    Zimbra itself will not run on Windows 2003. The Web interface works on IE and Firefox, so you can install it on Linux/Mac and use the Web Mail in Windows..even run the administrative interface in Windows. Also, it can use Active Directory for authentication.

    Does that help?

    If your windows server is beefy enough, you could always run VMWare Server on it, and install Zimbra in a Linux virtual machine...

    but i think it's better to use separated server with full installation of Linux.
