I have a friend that has a lot of experience setting up zimbra servers.
I talked to him last night and he just sent me an email:

"What do you need and when? As far as the server setup goes, I need the
IP, the domain its going to host email for, the MX record for that
domain to point to the servers IP, ports 22 (ssh), 25 (smtp), 80
(obvious), 443 (ssl), 110 (pop), 143 (imap), 993 (imap ssl), 995 (pop
ssl), 7071 (Zimbra Admin) opened and most importantly root access,
Zimbra requires root access. The ports themselves do not have to be
opened to the world. Port 22 can be locked down to a range, Port 25 can
be relayed from another server/firewall/spam filter, Port 80 isn't
necessary if using 443, 110 and 143 are optional if using 993 and 995.
The SSL ports require SSL certs which zimbra can generate itself but
other devices/browsers will bitch about the cert being invalid and you
have to make an exception for it. "

Joshua: Can you send me the credentials so I can get him working on this?
