Creating multiple Domains in zimbra is very straight forward (thankfully)

From the web interface, go to Configure > Domains

In the top right, click on the gear icon and choose 'new'. You can then enter the following values for a new email domain.

Domain name: example.com
Public service hostname: mail.example.com
Default Class of Service: Default (or if you have created a new one, you can enter it here.

Click next and enter the following

Most results returned by GAL search: 100 (this can be changed later)
Mail Server: Mail.servername.com

finally click on finish and you have a new domain setup with basic configuration. After the domain is setup, select it and go to the virtual hosts tab and enter mail.example.com as the virtual host then save it.

You can now start creating accounts and sending out mail. If you have the DNS configured for the domain and MX records you can also start recieving mail.

Hi,

    Thanks for this update.

  I have done some forum research and 99% is working as per your comment thanks for that.

 Now I need to know can we provide admin panel for each domain name, so the client itself can create email, set the limit, etc..

 Is it possible as we do in WHM/cPanel.

Kindly advice on this.

I believe this is only possible in the network edition (the paid version) in the open source version, you can create multiple admin accounts, but any admin that logs in will be able to see your entire zimbra server setup

Ho is that so....

Then I have to manage manually all the domains....

Okay is there any other open source some what like ZIMBRA, open office 365. etc... with individual domain control?

Unfortunately yes you will have to manage all the domains.

I am going to check with my friends who work on Zimbra development to see if they have some work around for this, but as far as I can tell any admin account you create will be able to see the entire server setup.

Zentyal offers another open source email server that is very good. It is based on M$ Exchange server and theoretically you could join a windows 2008 server to the zentyal domain and use GPO to setup restricted accounts, but having worked with Active Directory for many years, I anticipate this would be complicated to setup and maintain.

I'll post back once I hear from them.

Hi Emmanuel,

I was able to get a response from my Zimbra friends. This feature was indeed implemented but only in the Network (paid) edition of zimbra :( Currrently there is no workaround for the open source edition of zimbra.

http://wiki.zimbra.com/wiki/Administration_Console

This link confirms it.

Hoops! :-(

Okay.... what about Zentyal is this reliable as zimbra, can we use it in centos?

I did some forum search in that I found it can be installed in Ubuntu , kindly confirm whether we can do that in centos also?

Zentyal will not run in centos. Even though you can install it over Ubuntu you will have better sucess using their dedicated ISO.

Hi,

  thanks for the update.

  it was going smooth.... now I am stuck because of the individual domain login. Zentyal is also ruled out as you say...

  Now I need an solution to have an dedicated email server for my N number of client domains.

 Kindly asset me in this. I need an solution and close this issue ASAP.

With the open source solutions compromises have to be made. Being in similar situations before, I've had to chose between cost and operability. If you want to have the ability to have separate admins for each domain and isolate them to only information relevant to them, then paid solutions like Zimbra Network edition, Exchange server or maybe google app services are your best bet.
