Cool.  Wish I had time to set that up.

The CLUE meeting on the 11th is supposed to be about Zimbra, from a real 
live Zimbra guy.  Even if he doesn't show I think David Willson will 
give a talk on Zimbra.

Details at http://cluedenver.org/display.php?node=dtc_info.  Sorry it 
doesn't say what the topic is.  I'll follow up if the above is incorrect.

Does Zimbra (the do-it-yourself, free as in beer stuff) really require 
its own postfix?  I can see some config to hook it together but if you 
already have postfix that should be fine.  And Debian handles config 
file changes well enough.
