    Default Zimlet in zimbraAdmin is it possible?

    Hi all,
    Is it possible by a Zimlet to customize the account creation process?

    What I'm looking for is a way to randomly generate a password, create the account and send ad administrative message (by an external MTA). Everything from the inside of the zimbraAdmin web console.

    Is the Zimlet-way suitable for that? Would such a Zimlet be "visible" in the zimbraAdmin or they're only visible in the web client UI?

    I've already realized such a thing by a shell scritpt (with "zmprov"), but now I need this in the web interface and not via the ssh+run-some-script way.

    thanks a lot for any kindly help

    Yes, you can do this by an admin extension. An admin extension is a Zimlet for admin UI. Here's is a tutorial with an example similar to what you want to create:
    http://wiki.zimbra.com/index.php?tit...nding_Admin_UI
    Admin extensions offer much more flexibility than zimlets. In essence, with an admin extension you have access to all admin UI code at run-time and you can modify it in any way that you want.
    Feel free to PM me if you need more details.
