Zimbra as a standard email client

Postby ram_einstein » Sun Nov 27, 2005 4:34 am

Hi,
I'm not sure I understand what exactly Zimbra does and would really appreciate an explanation. Consider the scenario: I don't own my own server but I have purchased a domain from a third party, namely littlerassociates.com. I have install Zimbra on my local system. Is it possible to retrieve mails from their pop server? This is done by standard email clients if you provide them with the pop server name, port number to conect to (110 if no secure connection) username, and password. Similarly, it is possible with third party webmail service providers who also give you the feature to use pop mail. I don't know what to replace :7071/zimbraAdmin" with. Again, I would really appreciate a detailed explanation since my networking knowledge is nearly zero. I'd also like to know, once Zimbra is installed on my Fedora Core 4 machine, where the interface is.
Thanks and regards,
Ram

Yes, you can retrieve email from a pop3 server using fetchmail - have a search through the forum as it's been described many times. Zimbra is a mail server and collaboration software plus a webmail GUI. There's also comprehensive documentation here http://www.zimbra.com/community/documentation.html that will tell everything (well almost) you need to know about Zimbra.
Regards

Thanks, I'll look into it. I should read before asking!
