Pros

We can integration this suite with informative applications like Ted, IBM redbooks to view our daily feeds which is quite helpful for the people who are more interested in gaining knowledge.
What I like the best about Zimbra are its splendid storage volume and the mobile version. Our colleague has access to emails even when they are traveling or away from the office.
I like the easy installation and the web administrative console which can be used for many admin tasks. The Desktop app is great and easy to use.

Pros

It forms the foundation for any successful work environment and the parent company Microsoft is very good about listening to their users feedback and offering solutions in a timely manner as well.
Overall, we are very happy and fulfilled with the Outlook software as it stands now and expect it to only get better.
Love that my.zoom are automatically saved into my calander which can be shared and viewed by my.superviser at any time.

Cons

The update processes are complex, since they must be done in a controlled environment, because they can produce an error and place the entire service offline.
Hard to customize the installation, lost data when I needed to migrate to another server. The API uses XML-RPC which is not easy to use, JSON is a lot easier.
The read messages do not drop down to low priority, so if I leave one unread so I can come back to it. The message gets buried in the inbox.

Cons

The worst part I would say however is the app. They developed an app for the apple store and quite honestly it is slow and very difficult to navigate around compared to the desktop version.
Crash , no easy access from my phone , new emails update rate , older emails storage , retriving the older emails or lost emails is a big deal.
The interface has too much going on. There are a lot of useless features that i needed to turn off.
