    Default [SOLVED] Question about Zimbra Server application for SMB company

    On our company (a typical SMB) we use pop3 - smtp emails, and each employee download the emails using MS Outlook directly from the mail service provider.

    We would like to us Zimbra Server to be an intermediate email server, so all the emails could be automatically downloaded by the Zimbra Server from the email service provider, and our employees download the emails from the Zimbra Server.

    The idea is to leave a copy of the company emails on the Zimbra Server, and that the employees can have also their local copy inOutlook.

    We have an ADSL internet connection with fixed IP.

    The Zimbra Server could be installed on the DMZ, and the employees could connect to the appliance from the LAN.

    Is it possible to do this? thank you very much.

    Welcome to the forums

    Yes you could either use POP or the more preferable IMAP to serve the Outlook clients. Using fetchmail you could pull down the emails from your ISP and then distribute them via Zimbra; alternatively why not receive emails directly to your Zimbra server and then use one of the myriad of backup MX services on the internet to act as a secondary
