    Default need advice...deploying zimbra

    Hi.

    I'm deploying zimbra into a new office. they only have 1 physical server which they want to use for their mailserver and network/fileserver. for fileserver they want win2k3 setup. for mailserver i want to implement zimbra.

    the current setup they have is a win2k3 server, with vmware installed. then 2 linux guest OS's are installed, one for mailserver and one for assp antispam.

    would it be better to have linux as the main OS, where zimbra will be installed, then have just guest OS which will be the win2k3 box and it will also be the authentication (active directory) for the lan stations?

    the existing setup IMO might be the reason we are having issues with the existing mailserver, which cannot send out email to yahoo and to other major ISPs, although it can receive without problems...i find it easier setting a linux box as a dns server rather than a win2ks box as a dns server....

    what are your thoughts on this?

    Yes-
    Zimbra performs better in a "Real" linux environment as opposed to a virtual environment.

    I agree with jholder. Besides, mailserver takes a higher precedence than the file server.

    Either way it won't fix the issue he has, it sounds to me like reverse DNS (PTR) isn't setup properly. Lots of the major mail carriers and isp's won't accept mail from a server without a reverse DNS (PTR) record.

    PTR is configured. It's working now I just retained existing config of Windows Server, and Linux inside Windows via vmware
