    Default [SOLVED] Multi Server setup clarification please

    Apologies if I have missed something here, but I am a little confused about the requirements of a multi server setup. The confusion relates to the placement of the MTA component.

    I am using ZCS 5 Community edition.

    Is the following setup correct?

    Server1: Proxy Server Component, MTA Component
    Server2: Everything else except Proxy and MTA

    Or do I need the MTA component on both servers?

    Thanks in advance

    MTA on one server is enough.
    You just need to be sure you have the correct rights (firewall) between the server.

    OTOH, zimbra-proxy is not needed when you have a single mailbox server.

    If it's about DMZ (and reverse-proxying), I'd rather put (in DMZ):
    . a http(s) reverse proxy
    . a SMTP relay (that will allow spooling when your ZCS goes into maintenance)
    Both can be on the same server/VM.
