    Default Must be a member of Admin Group

    HELP! I'm trying to download the free Zimbra desktop application for mac osx. I'm currently on a Mac OS X version 10.5.6. Every time I try to install Zimbra as I am prompted to select if I "agree" or "disagree" with the users statement, a box pops up asking me "Please enter your password" and then at the bottom of the box it says "must be a member of the Administrators group" What is this?! I am the ONLY person who uses this computer, I'm the admin of my computer, so what password are they asking for? I tried leaving it blank and had no luck....HELP!

    Default You have to have administrative rights

    You have to have administrative rights to be able to install Zimbra Desktop.
    Here is an explanation, but my Mac is running a different language, so my translations might not be totally accurate.

    First click your control panel icon in your dock. You know where you make system choices. Then select Accounts, and locate and select your username.
    There is a check box that must be checked called something like "allow user to manage this computer".

    Now you should be able to install Zimbra. Worked for me anyway...
