A similar error occures when selecting the "mail queues" tab with the following message:

Message: system failure: exception during auth {RemoteManager: fehr.is-a-chef.com->zimbra@fehr.is-a-chef.com:22} Error code: service.FAILURE Method: GetMailQueueInfoRequest Details:soap:Receiver

I changed the port from 22 to a different port in the SSHD config file, reason being I was tired of having people brute force attack the server 2300 times per day. is there anyway I can reconfigure Zimbra to use a different port or am I damned if I do, damned if I don't?
