    Default A Good Way To User Open Source Zimbra

    Email is so important in my operation and doings I can't risk not having access.
    So, I love Zimbra, I hate all webmail clients including Squirrelmail, RoundCube, etc. They fade compared to Zimbra.

    So, I keep all my emails flowing thru my ISP, me BTW, via mydomain.com
    I then setup all mydomain.com addresses to forward a copy of the email to my zimbra server for the corresponding user. I run my zimbra server on mydomain.net
    Via the preferences I set my reply to address and such to reflect mydomain.com

    So the world just interacts with me via my .com addresses while I have the benefits of Zimbra. Sweet.

    I've had my Zimbra go down but when it does I jump on RoundCube webmail and stay intouch while I fix zimbra.

    Easy and works well for my situation.

    Now if I could master a way to backup zimbra so I can recover from this once in a lifetime failure that somebody will get ?

    Backup and recovery is fairly straightforward, have you read the backup articles in the wiki (there's also several excellent articles/procedures in the forums)? There's also details of how to do a disaster recovery but the important thing is that your procedure must be written down and you need to run your recovery (regularly so you know how to do it) before you actually need to restore a system - practice, practice, practice until you know how to do it in your sleep.

    I I captain
    I've read them. So many of them I don't know what to do most times.
    Well, I've chosen a technique and I'm about to try it Feb 20, 2011.
    I am going from FOSS 7 32bit to FOSS 7 64bit Ubuntu 10.04
    I'm sure that will build my skills.
    Right after I will pretend my box died. Build another box and lay down all of /opt and fix the permissions.

    Let me not go too off topic. thanks
