Zimbra Feature Reviews

25 reviewers had the following to say about Zimbra's features:

Max Sudyin

A replacement for GSuite or MS Exchange for SMBs

2020-02-29

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)

JOSE BAUTISTA

It's our business email platform.

2018-03-31

We have control of the entire service and it allows us to function efficiently and quickly.

Pros

The account management console is very simple and easy to understand.

Cons

There is no way for the graphical administration interface to see the emails that are arriving and which is coming out, for purposes of tracking any particular activity with a user, it is difficult to do so quickly.

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

2018-05-25

The planning of activities as well as the contact information of the different employees is centralized through this program.

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.

Howard Osborne

An integral tool for managerial issues

2019-04-09

I think that Zimbra is a perfect tool for emailing and management. Despite some issues, it is very easy to implement the service and it helps to communicate with customers and colleagues in the handiest way.

Pros

Another plus is a simple and user-friendly design. It is perfect both for qualified users and people who use it for the first time.

Cons

Despite all pluses, the service still demands some basic IT skills. Thirdly, there might be some problems with data export and back up, because the software depends on servers.

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

2018-05-30

Zimbra Collaboration Suite has brought me many benefits professionally speaking.

Pros

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.

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 Transition

2019-02-03

With Zimbra it has been easier to encourage collaboration with different teams and team members.

Pros

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.

Light weight, Cost-effective & User-Friendly Web-Email Collaboration product

2019-01-31

Specially during the times we were connected to VPN, it used to easily work even in low or restricted network connectivity.It had easier and user-friendly User Interface, including refresh button, to force reload emails as per convenience.

Pros

1. Specially the optimized nature of it to work on limited or lower network connectivity like VPN, 2. Cost effective and Opensource nature.

Cons

It has sort of older look and feel compared to other open source email collaboration products.

The new version of Zimbra is the best and most complete tool for emails

2019-10-09

Pros

Version 8.8.15 of ximbra collaboration is much broader in terms of mobility for calendars and events in general.

Cons

The zimbra suite does not have many key functions for working with document editions directly in real time, or for the execution of discussion forums among our team employees.

I much preferred the presentation and management that the hotmail had a few years ago.

Pros

The general presentation menu is quite friendly to the eye., as well as its versatility to be used in cell phones.

Cons

The tricky process associated with downloading attachments compared to emails such as gmail or firefox.
