Zimbra Collaboration Suite (ZCS) Open Source Edition v5.0 On Debian Etch - Page 3

8 Zimbra Web Interface

I'll show you some screenshots, but no detailed information about the usage of the web interface - the possible settings are too extensive. Please have a look at the admin guide and the wiki.


8.1 Administration Console

You can access the administration web interface via https://server1.example.com:7071/zimbraAdmin/ . Log in with the username "admin" (without the quotes) and the password that you assigned to this account at step 7.3.

Welcome to the administration console - make yourself familar with it.

If you want to have mail adresses like [email protected] instead of [email protected] you have to create a new domain. Click on "Domains" in the main menu on the left side and afterwards on "New" in the window menu (Manage Domains).

Enter "example.com" (without the quotes) as domain name, set the domain status to active and click on "Finish".

Click on "Accounts" in the main menu on the left side and afterwards on "New" in the window menu (Manage Accounts) to create a new user.

A wizard will guide you through the creation of the new account. Take care that you select the right domain (example.com) for this account. Note: I created the account [email protected] .

Afterwards mark the new account in the accounts-list and click on "Edit".

Enter a desired password for the new account (Tab "General Information") and click on "Save" in the window menu. Note: I chose "howtoforge" (without the quotes) as password.

Log out and proceed with the next step.


8.2 User Access

Open http://server1.example.com within your browser and log in with the user account that you created at step 8.1.

Make familar with the web interface.
