Meeting point:

To be in the right meeting point, you first need to be in the big square called JAMAA EL FNA and then look for the post office and I'll be in front of BARID CASH of the post office, wearing a white hat and holding a sign saying: Zaim free walking tours.

There are 2 sides of the post office. The main entrance, the big door in front of Jamaa El Fna Square, and a small door with a sign of BARID CASH on top, at the other side of the post office in front of a garden.

I'll be waiting on the other side of the post office, not the main entrance but in front of the main entrance of Barid Cash near the second ATM of the post office (in front of the garden) in Jamaa El Fan Square.

Response from Zaim:

I said as an answer to your email I was there, I didn't find you and left with 2 guests (who witnessed that). Where were you waiting? N.B: The meeting point is well described. It is in front of Barid Cash of the post office (not the main entrance but at the other side of the post office in front of the garden) in the big square Jemaa El Fna.
