10.4: Auto-start the Zimbra Collaboration Suite Internet
After using Zimbra Collaboration Suite for a few months and loving it, but at the same time being ticked that they don't have an autostart item bundled with it, I finally decided to whip up my own. The following code should be pasted and saved into a plain text document with the name com.zimbra.zcs.plist:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
	<key>Label</key>
	<string>com.zimbra.zcs</string>
	<key>ProgramArguments</key>
	<array>
		<string>/usr/bin/su</string>
		<string>-</string>
		<string>zimbra</string>
		<string>-c</string>
		<string>zmcontrol start</string>
	</array>
	<key>RunAtLoad</key>
	<true/>
</dict>
</plist>

Save the code into /Library » LaunchDaemons. Give the machine a reboot, and Zimbra will start automagically. The nice thing about this solution is that it's compliant with launchd, and no longer relies on the now-deprecated StartupItems method.

10.4: Auto-start the Zimbra Collaboration Suite

I don't understand, but i already have a launchitem script on my system, it's in /System/Library/LaunchDaemons (com.zimbra.zcs.plist)
I don't recall making it myself so it must have been there from the start. Also it works flawlessly for me!
