    The main purpose of this thesis is to demonstrate an implementation of Zimbra collaboration system in a larger organization. After three parts of the same organization merged into one a need of a one e-mail and collaboration system was felt. To fulfil this need, a system called Zimbra Collaboration Suite was chosen. Zimbra has many advantages in comparison to other e-mail systems. In the thesis we will firstly get to know the Zimbra product from the administrator point of view as we will talk about system requirements and protocols that are needed for this system to work in the most optimal way. Because of specific needs of users different email clients were analysed. A comparison between Zimbra and currently the most popular e-mail system – MS Exchange is also included in the thesis. A detailed description of the installation and migration procedure is included as well as the issues and their solutions we experienced during the whole process. Another goal of the thesis is to help system administrators when making a decision for a mail system or with its implementation. Because Zimbra is open source I was also trying to promote usage of open source system in general.
