    Default Zimbra on Mac OS X Powerbook (Server and Client)

    Hi, I just downloaded Zimbra - it looks like it's just what I've been dreaming of - and the install process worked fine, just like a standard Mac OS X software install. I even spotted the bit about /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmsetup.pl and when it failed in Terminal I managed to work out how to set up a root userid and password, then repeated /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmsetup.pl and saved the file, which had a .5nnn extension.

    You will have gathered I know nothing about this stuff, so what do I do now? I was looking for a nice little Zimbra icon or something - yes, I'm naive! Used to be a Systems Programmer on IBM a million years ago but whilst Macs are fantastic I don't know much Mac/Unix/Linux stuff. Thanks in anticipation, Rob

    Default what now?

    Now you've got a fully functioning mail server.

    You can use the web client at
    http://hostname/zimbra/mail
    and the admin client at:
    https://hostname:7071/zimbraAdmin (this is where you create accounts)

    Your admin login was set up during the install. (You remember the password, right?)

    Default Default Hostname

    Many thanks Marc, have tried but what's the definitive way to find my hostname? On a terminal window I get a prompt saying:

    Last login: Sun Jan 29 11:06:07 on ttyp1
    Welcome to Darwin!
    no-dns-yet:~ robsewell$

    I thought the no-dns-yet bit would be the hostname, but suspect that this string means that something somewhere is missing? I tried hostnames of 127.etc., localhost, and the no-dns bit, plus my actual IP address as supplied via DHCP from my router.

    Many thanks again,

    Rob

    Default Well, no-dns-yet is bad

    You're not going to get far without DNS.

    Your hostname can be determined by typing:
    hostname
    at the command prompt.

    You can also use 127.0.0.1 in your browser, instead of the hostname.
