I have thought about using zimbra for a while and think I might give it a run. I have my main web/domain name on one server hosted remotely and run my mail server locally.
I just have two initial questions:
1) I have read everywhere in relation to zimbra needing a valid dns entry to install. Well, my FQDN does point to the web server, and mail.FQDN points to my home ip address, but as far as the installed network in the server is concerned, it only sees the ip addresses of 127.0.0.1 and 192.168.1.10. Should I run a domain name server on the server box itself? I am behind a smoothwall firewall, and I am supposing (as I type this) I could set up a static DNS entry in smoothwall for zimbra to see. Is this what is meant to be done?
2) using mail.FQDN.com will give the user an awkward logon name, how do you actually go about making their logon only user@FQDN.com?
I know these may be basic questions, but google has not been my friend on this occasion.
