    Default Is Zimbra overkill? We want simple email server for our free online photo editor app

    Hello,

    We are looking for an simple email server for our website.

    We are currently using GoDaddy, but we would like to have our own mail server. Just something simple and easy to deal with on a daily basis. Would Zimbra be overkill?

    Thanks
    Ricky

    Zimbra does require more resources than most mail servers (minimum 2 GB of RAM), but it has a superb interface.

    It can work in any size environment - from just a few users, to a few million users. So to answer your question, overkill would need to be defined based on what your requirements are.

    If you want to use Zimbra for your email but do not want to run your own Zimbra server, there are plenty of hosts out there that will gladly sell you Zimbra email accounts, also

    And the integration possibilities with Zimbra and Zimlets might give your app the edge you need.

    I use Zimbra at home with a total of 3 users; I love it for the easy of administration.
