    Default IMAP/POP proxy

    hi!
    I'm installing zimbra on a debian sarge. I need to configure zimbra to use another mail server (smtp, pop, imap). well... for smtp I found mta ip address parameter and for pop/imap I understood that I need to configure pop/imap proxy (isn't it?).

    I read in docs that there are proxied and real ports and how I can set up these parameters but I do not succeed to find real ip parameter (mail server ip address).

    am I mistaking something?

    Thanks in advance,
    Fabio

    You can't use Zimbra's web UI as a front end to another POP/IMAP store. Besides the protocol incompatibility (we speak SOAP instead of IMAP), you'd lose all the interesting features of Zimbra by doing this! IMAP servers don't support contacts, calendar, wiki, server-side zimlet plugins, conversations, cross-folder search, renamable tags, search folders, etc. etc. etc.

    Any interest in trying out a new, modern mail store?

    pop/imap proxy is used as a Zimbra front-end to distribute the connections or to make users mapping.

    Did you look at the values in the config.
