zimbra-logoZimbra Collaboration Suite (ZCS) is a nice software about collaboration, mainly in mail server service. Zimbra contains Postfix for mail server service, ClamAV for Anti virus Scanner, SpamAssasin, LDAP service and provided both mail client and web mail service.

Zimbra combined 2 licensing style, commercial and open source edition. I used the open source edition and deployed Zimbra into OpenSUSE 10.2 server in my office. The Zimbra Installation Guide for OpenSUE 10.2 can be found here. The installation and configuration running smoothly without big problem. I got an error message while resolving MX records for my DNS server, so I changed DNS configuration to fit with Zimbra requirement.
