Hi,

I am wondering if it is possible to use just the WebMail server with existing mail servers (ie: custom/legacy e-mail servers, or even just M$ Exchange Server [without the zimbra colaboration server in between]).

I am presuming that this is not a drag-and-drop solution, that it would need a LOT of re-working, to use JUST the webMail server (essentially the pages that serve up the e-mail inbox interface to the client side) and have it talk to an existing/legacy e-mail server/system.

It seems like the webMail server is all/mostly Java/Tomcat, so a couple of questions here. Can the webMail server be installed on a different machine than the Zimbra Collaboration Suite? To further that question, can the webMail server be installed on an M$ box (with Tomcat) and be set up to talk to an existing/legacy e-mail server system ... either on M$ or Linux.

Essentially, we are interested in the webMail interface, but would like to incorporate this into an existing/legacy e-mail system. Can this be done, and if so, how much work would it take to get this done (presuming that we have competent java developers to throw at this)?

Cheers,
