Pros

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.
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.
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

I love how easy it is for someone to put their talents on display and how easy it is for me to find them, helped a lot to find great people to partner with.
Workplace has given me the opportunity to connect with other independent business owners with similar interests and values. It is a secure platform we feel safe sharing motivating content.
I'm very pleased and happy with this product. It's helping me to stay connected and be productive in all areas online.

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

Don't even use it anymore due to the massive spam and inability to turn off notifications.
I disliked the large amount of notifications that are received from the groups that I participated. This impacts directly on my productivity at work, because it spent a considerable amount of time.
Probably the biggest complaint I've heard concerning Workplace is the price as it is a bit on the expensive side for what it does.

Zimbra Collaboration Suite

Zimbra Collaboration Suite groups the functions that I need in a software to plan and communicate

Reviewed 5 years ago

With Zimbra I have improved substantially with respect to task planning and communication with my team. In the same way it has allowed us to save resources since it is a free software that offers a quality service.

Pros

One of Zimbra's positive aspects is that it offers e-mail, calendar, contact book and tasks in a single software, so I should not install other applications to enjoy these tools. Its interface is simple, facilitating its use for anyone who uses this program for the first time.

Cons

I believe that it has limitations when it is handled from smartphones if it is compared with its operation from desktop computers. From the aesthetic point of view it could improve its interface.

It's easy to deploy, easy to be a admin and is very secure that is the real problem of the auto-admin mail systems.

Pros

Email setup is a synch and it has many customization abilities overall that really help. Contacts are made easy to access. I also like the ability to calendar share.

Cons

I wish I could share documents straight from the briefcase tool. That would be helpful!

Excellent solution. I come from Plesk's mailbox management and the difference is really abysmal .

Pros

A really fluid, convenient, fast and efficient management of email accounts. They have a plan for small businesses, the kickstart, which is perfect for those who have few boxes under management. The assistance is kind, punctual and courteous and their salesmen are very good.

Cons

Often the software from some problem, does not recognize the installed license and may have unwelcome starting settings.

Zimbra Collaboration Suite

Zimbra Collaboration Suite is a very useful communication tool that groups several functions.

Reviewed 5 years ago

Simply Zimbra Collaboration Suite is the best way to stay connected in the institution where I work. The planning of activities as well as the contact information of the different employees is centralized through this program. It is easier to communicate with the Zimbra Collaboration Suite.

Pros

The biggest advantage offered by Zimbra Collaboration Suite is the ability to communicate with other users by integrating various tools such as email, contact book, task planning and calendar in a single software and with a very simple interface.

Cons

Although Zimbra Collaboration Suite is a great software, sometimes it presents operating problems that are resolved by closing and opening the browser from where you work. Another aspect to improve is the design of the interface from the aesthetic point of view. It's simple but unattractive to look at.

Typical email interface

Reviewed 2 years ago

I think it is fine. Similar functionality to the Google suit.

Pros

I liked the fact that one can run it on a browser, making it compatible with any operating system. Email categorization with folders makes it easier to organize correspondence than Google mail.

Cons

It is somewhat unpolished and could produce strange from-end errors, but besides that there is not much to complain.

A replacement for GSuite or MS Exchange for SMBs

Reviewed 3 years ago

It does its job for us - provides us the corporate email & calendar while working on our servers. Otherwise, if you don't bother about privacy, you may consider GSuite instead.

Pros

- Full set of features required from a collaboration tool - Email, Calendar, Contact management - Integration with Apple devices (Apple Mail, Calendars)

Cons

- Poor web experience with Email - it screws up pasting images in the body of the email message - Sometimes calendar sends events from the past repeatedly (and yes, sends notifications whether you accepted that meeting one year ago once again)

Best Email Client Software

Reviewed 4 years ago

Zimbra, an instant mail setup client which is the best for the corporate sector as we can easily deliver messages and receive the same which works in real time. I have been using Zimbra mail server from the past 2 years and it works remain excellent till time as I don't even have any late deliverability nor any delayed task on it. The features were actually well built for an employee who used to use this on a daily basis and can interact with their colleagues/staff members/clients easily and on time.

Pros

The most I like in Zimbra is: 1. Faster Deliverability of Emails in real time 2. Can add Email Signature to all our emails 3. Can send Events/Meetings Invites 4. User Responsive in design and lite speed software 5. Can use Out of Office option if you're in leave and send automatic responsive email to them 6. Can Import/Backup all emails/contacts with a single click 7. Can search through all our emails by using search options 8. There is an inbuilt Calendar for our quick meetings lookup in it

Cons

Hmm.. At Present, there's no cons or least liked about this software as I have been using it from past 2 years and going with the same speed till now :)

Excellent option as Mail Server and Collaboration Suite

Reviewed 3 months ago

Zimbra work fantastic, is very stable and well suited for relays server. we used to send the bill to all the clients and work well

Pros

The cost is one of the pros of Zimbra, specially if you need only the mail server. Also, the cost if the licenses is cheaper than other options like Exchange.The support is excellent, specially from Zimbra's community and you can find examples or help in case you need do a troubleshooting

Cons

If you have other tools from MS suite the integration is complicated, not impossible but is quite difficult integrate you will need to do a research and for sure develop a connector.

Simple, versatile and efficient.

Reviewed 5 years ago

Thanks to this software they have improved the relationships in our work team. Its diverse tools allow us to better plan our activities and keep us permanently communicated. Very good.

Pros

It is an economic software and very comfortable to work with. It is an easily accessible platform capable of integrating the most demanded requirements in an institution such as: mail, contacts, shared calendar and online documents. It is quite practical.

Cons

It is not the best option to integrate to mobile devices. I think it has several limitations when it comes to entering the Zimbra from a smart phone when compared to running on a desktop computer.

Zimbra Collaboration Suite

Perhaps the worst productivity suite I've ever used

Reviewed 2 years ago

You can do better than Zimbra. Whether Google or Microsoft, go with a company that delivers a top-notch productivity experience and doesn't have any of the quality or customer support problems that Zimbra has.

Pros

When it worked, Zimbra provided our users with a decent experience that wasn't completely replicated once we switched away from it. There were certain features, like built-in RSS reader support, that other platforms don't have.

Cons

Zimbra has changed hands quite a bit over the years, and it isn't difficult to see why. Its quality control is abominable, for one. I lost track of the number of times our Zimbra environment went offline because of some obscure bug. Zimbra's documentation tends to be scattered, and when you do find it, you'll see that Zimbra makes its own little versions of every open source product it uses. Its customer service generally doesn't know what it's doing except for one guy, Rick, that I occasionally spoke with.

Zimbra Collaboration Suite is a great software that allows us to be communicated effectively.

Reviewed 5 years ago

Zimbra Collaboration Suite has brought me many benefits professionally speaking. Having this software has been a very pleasant experience since we migrated from another mail service to Zimbra. With this things seem simpler. Its interface helps a lot so that any user finds it easy to handle it.

Pros

What I like most about the Zimbra Collaboration Suite is that it groups several services in a single package. To have a list of contacts, a tool to plan activities, a calendar and most importantly: email service, covers all my needs at a professional level. It has been the best investment that has been made in the institution where I have been working for several years.

Cons

I really do not find major flaws in this software. For a low price I think it covers very well the needs that can be presented to us in an office to keep communications.

Zimbra Collaboration Suite

Great solution for Linux based on-prem or cloud email collaboration suite

Reviewed 3 years ago

The deployment was easy, I was able to easily connect the server to our LDAP server and import all of our users. The migration of content was a bit more difficult due to the nature of our old system, practically nothing supports GroupWise, so we had to migrate one account at a time via IMAP from the old server to the new server.

Pros

It is based on Linux, it can do SSO sign-on with Active Directory, as well as most LDAP based authentication directory services. The web mail is full featured, not a light client. They provide both ActiveSync and CalDAV/CardDAV access, which is important for us as a design company using mostly Mac computers.

Cons

The software itself is great. My only issue was for the few times I needed to reach out to Zimbra/Synacor's support, the response time was a bit slow (1-2 days). I assume if this had been an outage and had called in rather than only email my request, I would've received a faster response.

Zimbra is simply outstanding and easy to implement. It can also be used for data storage and sharing.

Also, it is easy to manage for us and supports all the major platforms. Zimbra is fast and convenient.

1. Email manager, easy use and configuration, which allows to connect with different operating systems. 2.

The last update of zimbra has a chat, so that users created by the company, who has it installed, can communicate.

Cons

It is not completely compatible with some mail clients, which does not allow the configuration of the mail.

About Zimbra

Reviewed 4 years ago

Firstly we use this software to check the incoming mails from clients or colleagues. The experience is quite good while using this software as it is fast, more secure. It blocks the mails from the third party systems which are not trusted by this zimbra collaboration suite. We can integration this suite with informative applications like Ted, IBM redbooks to view our daily feeds which is quite helpful...

Pros

1) Can be accessed through any browser like Chrome, Firefox, Edge etc.. 2) Can be accessed through Personal Computer and Mobile 3) Inbox folders, addresses, contacts, tasks, calender scheduling dates can be shared among multiple users 4) Can schedule group meetings with a specific date and time using calenders 5) Personal tasks can be assigned or tasks can be assigned in groups. The progress of the task can be specified and the works to do further in regards to the task can also be specified. 6) A specified directory called brief case is available to store our files. 7) Zimlets are available to make the conversations between end to end users in a more formal, more interactive way. 8) Tags can be used to filter out the incoming mails that is to be called out in a particular category.

Cons

I didn't find any Cons. I find the working of this software Swift and smooth with no time lags while loading the incoming mails.

Easy to use and full of features

Reviewed 4 years ago

I used Zimbra in my previous company and I liked the suite very much because it offered almost anything you'd need from an on-premise mail server. It also had some extra features like its own cloud support to share documents and files amongst users. The paid version also came with the connector for Outlook allowing users keep using their standard mail client application. I never had any issue to configure my email account on my mobile phones either through the MS Exchange protocol compatibility. It also comes with a rich web interface. Now it should also integrate a chat/conference and a document collaboration features but they were not available yet when I was using Zimbra so I can't tell anything about them.

Pros

Easy for the users It has its own cloud-like file sharing feature It works on almost any kind of device through standalone clients or rich web client.

Cons

Being Linux based it might be a bit harder to set-up and configure for Microsoft oriented admins

Free email service

Reviewed 4 years ago

I'm no longer at work where I use Zimbra, but I recommend it 100%

Pros

I met Zimbra when in one of my jobs they demanded the use of free software, which I thought was wonderful, I could not participate in the configuration of the service, however my support colleagues did it without knowing anything about the tool, following the manuals and the broad community that it has; the installation was a success, the next step was to provide users with their mail and a brief explanation of its use, but it really was not necessary since the tool was so intuitive that there was not someone who could not use it, we were all delighted with that we could access our mail from any device with Internet access, be able to schedule calendars and meetings, share email folders with other people, synchronize with any email client.

Cons

Few disadvantages you can have of a product like this, perhaps for those who managed the service could be somewhat complicated at the beginning, but not impossible to manage, since there was no interruption of the service at any time.

Cool virtual workplace

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

We use Workplace to provide the virtual lounge for our staff to "hang out". Works really well since we have a lot of work-from-home remote staff and they need a place where we can communicate just about anything outside of work and get to know each other more. And it has nothing to do with your personal facebook account, which is awesome, because not everyone wants to connect using their personal facebook.

Cons

I don't think it works really well for project collaboration and project tracking.

Like its name suggests it is exactly Facebook used in the workplace concept. There is news feed where you can share information with your colleagues, you can react to all the messages with comments and likes, use chat or live video to communicate. The good thing is that everybody is already familiar with the tool so adoption rate is high.

Although it increases collaboration in the workplace, it might also cause you lose time.

I like that the usage is really simple and intuitive, it takes all the Facebook experience to my daily job.

Cons

I think SSO features could be a little less complicated, using it in my phone for the first time or when session closes for whatever reason is very complicated.

Facebook continues to innovate

Overall, great program to improve collaboration in your work environment

Pros

I liked the file sharing and ease communication between coworkers aspect of this program. I never thought Facebook could be used for work

Cons

It’s not as user friendly as expected, but it is getting there. I feel like Facebook continues to improve your experience

Great for Large Teams and Home Working

Reviewed 2 years ago

We used Workplace for a long time as it allowed teams to work together via chat in real time and is easy. Because it's design is similar to Facebook and Messenger, it is easy for staff to learn to use. It allowed quick sharing of files and is easier than sending by emails as they do not get lost in inboxes.

Pros

Easy Team Collaboration Easy Conference Calls Great Customer Support

Cons

Workplace prices can be quite high and not viable for smaller companies

It's OK

Reviewed 2 years ago

It's OK, but it's not my favorite. For a smaller organization, I would look at Slack instead.

Pros

Most people know how to use Facebook so most folks don't need training on Workplace. The live feature is particularly useful for our daily company huddles.

Cons

It's not Slack. Sure, you can create different groups and permissions. But it's not good for project or task management and the collaboration is clunky.

Pros

Great for the same goal of Collaboration to do on business even for private purposes on the private Facebook group.

Cons

May complicated to use in the first time due to many function different from original Facebook. Therefore, customer support and internal function for Collaboration make it easy to use.

Workplace has kept our employees in-sync and engaged

Reviewed 5 years ago

Better team collaboration. We used to share emails and sticky notes daily. Not anymore.

Pros

Workplace is based on the Facebook platform and since most of our employees are active on Facebook, it was very easy for them to adapt to the tool. The persistent chat and video calling features are excellent.

Cons

File sharing or sending capabilities are not that great. I understand that it has integrations with google drive, but if it had basic file sending and posting capabilities, that would be helpful.

Good chat functionality, technology not as strong

Reviewed 2 years ago

It's great for collaboration and allows my dispersed team to connect in real-time.

Pros

It's easy to quickly connect with other members from my team across the globe. Best for the quick chat functionality. I like the ability to use emojis.

Cons

It often needs a system reset and doesn't always deliver messages in real-time. Many times I'll get a notification from my phone app before I receive the message on my computer.

Pros

This is a very good software that lets you collaborate and communicate with your colleagues. When testing various collaboration software, Workplace was at the top.

This isnt Slack. Slack seems to be at the epicenter for work collaboration. Its not as fluid as it however still a great tool for productivity and workflow.

This software makes it easy for me and my fellow employees to communicate on a simple to use, secure, platform. People these days love Facebook, so it's great to have a version of Facebook that is usable in the workplace

Cons

File transfer/sharing could be easier and more intuitive. It would also be great to be able to link with G suite in the app.

Good Collaboretive Tool

Reviewed 3 years ago

Overall experience is good, in start we are addicted to it but now the use is gradually decrease.

Pros

You can easily connect with the colleague and member of your workplace. Easy to chat and plan the team schedule. You can easily post the key points and take recommendation from the team members.

Cons

It looks more like a social media website than a team collaboration thing. It make sense about the chat and group function but initial setting is difficult with the members.

Positive experience with the product itself as an alternative to slack.

Pros

Integrated with Facebook, easy to use and collaboration was good. Free price point is also very attractive.

Cons

It encourages people to live around Facebook. This often leads to people getting sidetracked with funny cat videos.
