My adventure started when I read that Comcast and Zimbra joined forces. I've had comcast for years and I thought I would see what all the fuss was about.
I thought, no problem. I've installed many many suites like this that handle mail...calender...etc. But this time, I was wrong
I've only been a Mac user for just under a year, but how hard could it be? Well I've spent ALL day looking through these forums to no avail. I'm lost, confused, ill, and to top it all off... I can't even figure out how to uninstall this #%$@* thing.
I loaded the Open source suite first. It wen't so-so. Thought well maybe I need to "Desktop" download to make it all come together. Nope! *now back to before I downloaded the Desktop* I had DNS ERROR's all over the place. I'm not smart enough nor could I find any good answers in here to get it resolved. Well I got past that *still not sure if it went through ok or not*. It ended up disabiling postfix in launchd.
Then checked for port conflicts. I needed to SET a Admin Password. I got that part figured out ok.
It got to the bottom and said *** CONFIGURATION COMPLETE - press 'a' to apply. So of course I typed in "a", saved configuration data to a file.
Went down a long list of "adding new entry "bla-bla-bla"... then said Done.
Created a bunch more stuff
Notified Zimbra of installation [YES]
a couple more things and finally...
Configuration complete - press return to exit
So basically I got out of all that.... NOTHING!!!
Don't know how to start it.. Doesn't look like its completely installed to begin with. Which isn't all too bad because I know there are a lot of things way over my head. I just click on "Uninstall" and it undoes itself. Or better yet just drag it over to the AppZapper and let it do it for me. BUT like I said.. I can't even uninstall it!
Can someone please walk me through getting this off my machine so I can free up precious memory? I'm on an Macbook Intel Core 2 Duo running OS X 10.4.9.
This is just one open source bit of software I'll have to live without. Although I will say that the Demo's had me all worked up and excited. Too bad the average user can't get it to operate correctly.
