I would recommend using a CentOS 7 Droplet with 8GB of RAM.

Once you have your CentOS 7 Droplet, you can follow the steps from the official Zimbra documentation on how to install it on a CentOS server:

One thing that you need to keep in mind is that you might have to use port 587 rather than port 25 for SMTP.
