Free version lacks features and cloud (payed) version is too expensive

2018-07-01

Pros

In the company we all remember Zimbra. It left us with a really good impression. It had nice features that other "better" ones don't have like batch mail forwarding or delayed email sending. I would use it again.

Cons

We also faced a couple of database corruptions so we decided to think about going cloud version but....it was more expensive than GSuite or Office 365 so... we stopped using it.

Zimbra Transition

2019-02-03

Zimbra was chosen as a preferred suite for our company because it allows for a simple client that every member of our workforce could use without feeling overwhelmed with Outlook or Office 365. With Zimbra it has been easier to encourage collaboration with different teams and team members.

Pros

Ok lets begin with the good. Zimbra is a suite that comes with the basic calendar, contact list and the ability to create tasks. It allows you to set reminders, tasks and appointments and share them with coworkers quickly. This is perhaps the best features of this software. It is a relatively simple program without all the bells and whistles of the beast known as Outlook. It is the simplicity of this software and security that makes it ideal for our company. We have just migrated to Zimbra and the roll out for the most part was successful. One thing I absolutely love about Zimbra is the ability to set it up in Outlook. This gives me the collaboration within my team using Zimbra and the features I've come to love in Outlook.

Cons

If you are use to the larger and more powerful collaboration suite known as Office 365, you'll be a bit disappointed with Zimbra.

Office 365 Review

2018-09-11

Overall experience is great, using it for email and i like it much better than zimbra.

Pros

I use the 365 email and it is laid out in a way that is easy to navigate.

Cons

going from zimbra email to 365 email was a change, but not a bad change at all.

Office 365 Offers Everything We Need and More

2019-03-15

We switched over from an in house email client (Zimbra) and the cost/benefit of doing so has been amazing as far as reduced support to end users and just the stability and feature set of the Outlook product as well as the Word and Excel and so many more applications...all inclused with the subscription.

Pros

I really like that Microsoft is always working to improve this entire suite of office applications, adding and improving functionality and that there are so many useful applications for most businesses. Microsoft Teams is an example of a solution that is moving in the right direction and really offering amazing features for any kind of team to centralize ideas and resources.

Cons

I like most of the applications, and MS Teams is great but it did cause me issues in not importing External contacts from Skype for Business. At the rate they improve things though, I am sure this is something that will be resolved soon.
