    Default Installation on a multi domain server

    We run webservers that host multiple domains, using sendmail to manage email. How would I configure Zimbra to function within this environment.

    The main issue is making sure users are able to use Outlook or the Zimbra client to read email, while also making sure they are constrained to their domain.

    We support multiple domains. Just use the admin tool (web UI) to create aditional domains and then users under each domain.

    Is there any way to create an administrative user that can manage a given domain's accounts, but not the entire server?

    Default delegated admin

    Delegated admin such as you've described is a very hot item on our roadmap - managing users under just one domain, or control over just on COS, etc. We can't commit to a timeframe yet, but it's coming.

    Expanding on this question...

    Let's say I have domain1.com and domain2.com hosting their email on a Zimbra box here. Is it possible to have DNS point both, say, mail.domain1.com and mail.domain2.com to the same IP address in my network (since it would be the same box), and have Zimbra be able to handle the HTTP headers for both names? Is this done automatically when a new domain is added in zimbraAdmin?

    Default multi domain servers

    Yes, that will work fine - users from both domains will be able to log in.

    However - only one of those domains will be the default domain, so the users NOT in that domain will have to log in with their full email address.

    That's fine, I plan on requiring that anyway. As long as the server will behave as apache does w/ virtual hosts - responding to different DNS records on the same IP address.

    Default Not quite the same

    It's not really the same as apache, which will parse the request string and offer up content based on the URL request (virtual hosting) - with tomcat, you get the same content, regardless of what you enter into the URL.

    But we do support multiple domains on one box - you can't for instance, skin them differently, tho. (Currently - this is an open enhancement request)

    Again - that's fine. So basically tomcat ignores the header. If it's on it's way to the server's IP address, it serves the same page. That's great because I want to be able to give our clients their own URL for the server, so instead of mail.mycompany.com for everyone, they can have it a little more "owned" - ie, mail.theircompany.com.

    Thanks for the quick response!
