    Default Zimbra Postif?

    Hello,

    I would like to know 2 things:
    1. How do I configure zimbra to run with postfix instead of tomcat? Is it possible?
    2. I'm running zimbra in the some server I had apache with virtual servers installed and running. How can I point zimbra for example to www.mydomain.com/webmail, and have www.mydomain.com shown my own web page?

    Thanks in advance

    Zimbra uses both : postfix as MTA and tomcat as Java thingy...

    The fast method if you don't care about ports:
    Change ports for the zimbra tomcat:
    Code:
    sudo su
    zmprov ms myserver.domain.com zimbraMailPort (port#) zimbraMailSSLPort (SSL#)
    tomcat restart
    in your main apache config file point a virtual server address (domain.com/webmail or webmail.domain.com) at that new port

    Thanks for your help.
    I have another question....
    What is Apache2 main config file? Where do I make that change? Can you give me an example? I'm sorry, but I'm new to Apache and I don't know much..
    Thanks in advance,

    You going to follow the matched port method?
    with my method you have:
    domain.com:80 -so just type domain.com
    but webmail.domain.com (or domain.com/webmail) - would require you to type webmail.domain.com:81 (or domain.com:81/webmail)

    Sorry, but now I'm confused...
    What's the best way?
    I do have problems when after modifying the ports I try to restart Apache.
    Starting from the beginning....what are the steps I should take?
    Thanks

    Either way your website will be accessed by typing "domain.com" over the standard http port 80 (https is 443)

    Now, how do you want people to access your zimbra WebApp login page?:

    webmail.domain.com (or domain.com/webmail)
    Then see: http://wiki.zimbra.com/index.php?title=ZimbraApache


    But if you are totally uncomfortable setting up that process
    AND are ok with having people access the login page via:
    webmail.domain.com:81 (or domain.com:81/webmail)
    Then use:
    Change ports for the zimbra tomcat:
    sudo su
    zmprov ms myserver.domain.com zimbraMailPort (port#) zimbraMailSSLPort (SSL#)
    tomcat restart
    in your main apache config file point a virtual server address (domain.com/webmail or webmail.domain.com) at that new port
