Did You Know? Zimbra Search is Awesome!

Wed, 06/15/2016 - 01:30

Let’s face it. Email is email, right? There aren’t many bells and whistles that one email provider has that the others do not.

And there is the 80/20 rule: 80 percent of people only use 20 percent of email features.

But … There’s always a but!

We all need to search our email accounts occasionally. As email accounts get bigger and bigger, there are more an more messages to search!

This is where Zimbra outshines all other email tools!
– It’s lightning fast.
– It’s incredibly easy.
– It makes your work life better!

Did You Know: The Zimbra Desktop UX

Wed, 06/08/2016 - 01:30

In my recent Zimbra Desktop posts, I have failed to mention the awesome Desktop user interface or user experience (UX).

Do you currently use the Zimbra Web Client? In other words, do you open a browser to access your Zimbra account? If yes, than Zimbra Desktop will be very familiar for you.

Zimbra Desktop looks and works almost exactly like the Zimbra Web Client!

You will see all of the same tabs in Desktop, with all of the same content you see in the Web Client, as shown below.

You can link any mail account you have (Gmail, Yahoo, etc.) to Zimbra Desktop, and you will see data for them all!

Below is a snapshot of my Mail tab. You can see both of my accounts in the overview pane.

When you click Preferences, you will be able to change preferences for any account.

The main differences to be aware of are in the upper right corner.

– The Online icon shows when you are connected to the internet. If you are not connected, it will say Offline.
– The Help menu offers the same choices you know from Zimbra Web Client.
– The Setup link opens the Setup screen, where you can manage the mail accounts already linked to Zimbra Desktop and add new mail accounts, as shown below.

I hope you are enjoying this series on Zimbra Desktop. If you have questions about how to use it, please post them in the comments below. Thanks!

Partner Spotlight – LANCOM ePaper room allocation with Zimbra

Printing paper labels for room allocation suddenly feels old-school with LANCOM ePaper displays. These sleek screens update to reflect the needs of your facility management or sales department, controlled centrally and totally wireless.

ETES developed an interface between Zimbra and the management software for LANCOM ePaper displays. Simply attach a display to your meeting room’s door and configure it once. The integrated battery last up to five years, and thanks to Wifi, updates take place almost at once.

The interface reads the meeting information from the appropriate calendar resource in Zimbra and prints the schedule on the wireless display. The available information ranges from name and description over date and time to organizer and attendants.

All you still need to do is select the meeting room’s resource when creating the calendar appointment. And don’t forget to provide meaningful information. It will be visible to your attendants…

Did You Know? Archive your email with Zimbra Desktop!

Wed, 06/01/2016 - 01:30

Did you know that you can archive your email if you use Zimbra Desktop?

Using the Zimbra Web Client, all of your email is stored in a cloud or on a server, and you cannot archive the data or save it to your computer.

In Zimbra Desktop, there is a section in the overview pane titled “Local Folders”, as shown below. When Zimbra Desktop is open, you can move any email into a local folder, and it will be stored on your computer.

So, create any folder you like. In the example below, I created a folder titled “Archive”. Move messages into the folder to save them on your computer!

Note: When you open your account with the Zimbra Web Client, the email will still be displayed in the original mail folder. This is because the Archive folder does not exist in the Zimbra Mail Client.

The first week of May Zimbra attended to the first event in Sardegna with our Gold partner in collaboration with Athena srl

The first event was hosted in Cagliari, Athena srl presented its company to the attendees, and Zimbra presented itself as well to the audience, introduced for the first time in Italy Zimbra Talk and Kaspersky gave a presentation as well about their security products.

The audience was mainly from Government entities interested in Open Source and looking for the right solution for their needs.

Most of the big Government entities in Sardinia attended the event in Cagliari and they showed a very strong interest in Zimbra Collaboration and in Zimbra Talk.

It was a great occasion to meet directly with some of Zimbra customers in Sardegna and some prospects too, discussing about Zimbra and how Zimbra can match their needs.

The day after we had another successful event in Sassari, where Athena has its headquarters, and where the attendees showed an amazing interest in Zimbra, Athena was amazed by the questions and the interest about Zimbra, we had an outstanding 50-minute Question and Answer session

Zimbra Collaboration 8.7 and Zimbra Desktop, 2FA and Password Lock

Mon, 05/16/2016 - 04:30

Zimbra wants to offer better Security on our products, so I’m thrilled to introduce two new features that Zimbra Desktop 7.2.8 brings to the public.

Zimbra Desktop – Password Lock

Starting with Zimbra Desktop 7.2.8, the end user can protect Zimbra Desktop with a password. You will find this new feature in Preferences > All accounts > General > Enable Password Lock

Once enabled, you will see a new lock icon on the top bar. You can click on that icon or just close Zimbra Desktop to be prompted for your Zimbra Desktop main account password.

This is the window that will prompt you for the main account password. This is a really useful way to protect your Zimbra Desktop content, preventing it from being read by another user who might have physical access to the computer.

After a successful login, you will see a banner message on the top bar saying Password Verified

Zimbra Desktop – Two-factor authentication

We introduced Zimbra Collaboration 2FA a couple of months ago, and starting in Zimbra Desktop 7.2.8, we support it natively on our Desktop client as well. The first step is to configure 2FA on the Web Client.

Then when you try to add an account protected already with Zimbra 2FA, or if you had one already added on Zimbra Desktop and configure 2FA later, the Zimbra Desktop will prompt you for a Code from one of the TOTP applications.

Once you add a valid 2FA code from a TOTP application, you will be able to see all ofyour accounts and launch the Desktop

Remember that you can try both, Zimbra Collaboration 8.7 Release Candidate, and Zimbra Desktop 7.2.8 Release Candidate. Both versions contain the enhanced security.
