The ``already in use'' message below probably means that you have
the sendmail or some other MTA already running on the system
which needs to be disabled.

It's been a while since I looked at Zimbra, but I do know it
wants to take over the system, using it's own MTA (Postfix),
OpenLdap, MySQL, and IMAP so these must be disabled.
