    sorry, was a misunderstanding.
    Really, I don't understand of all the division of component in a zimbra architecture, but my idea is separate the service (in a basic mail system this is MTA, IMAP server and webmail) and data (mails) for can store the mails in a more secure zone, while the frontend keep in DMZ.
    Is this possible?

    it depends on "how" you see what a frontend is.


    1. a seperate server, which communicates with a backend zimbra server", then this works
    2. a seperate server, with a standalone webmail software (e.g. squirrelmail)


    1. yes, works
    2. no, zimbra doesnt provide this with base zimbra packages


    why? zimbra is using a proxy (nginx) to communicate with the backend zimbra servers and not using a seperate webmail server. so to make it short: yes you can use multiple servers. the needed packages are zimbra-core and zimbra-proxy.

    Then, for do a separation between services (webmail, mta, imap server... and other stuffs) and data (mails), What packages should I separate?

    I have been reading the doc. What do you think about this config:

    server 1 (backend): Core, LDAP, Store, Logger, Convertd, apache
    server 2: Core, MTA, SNMP

    Which package contain the webmail?

    Do you recommend me install a proxy component for 2.000 users?

    this is well documented in the multiserver installation guide and i have already posted which packages are needed for just a running the proxy on its own server. (zimbra-proxy, zimbra-core)

    I think that your reply is prior to my edition. What do you think about my posible config? And about the use of proxy in my environment (up to 2000 users).

    Regards and Thank you very much.
