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

Zimbra is an open source software with an opportunity to send emails, keep contacts, and make notes in the calendar.

Cons

Thirdly, there might be some problems with data export and back up, because the software depends on servers.

JOSE B.

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.

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)

Reliable email manager!

2019-08-17

It can also be used for data storage and sharing.

Pros

What I like the best about Zimbra are its splendid storage volume and the mobile version.

The Mobile Version of Zimbra can really use an upgrade, we can only send messages and cannot attach files.

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

2018-05-25

Simply Zimbra Collaboration Suite is the best way to stay connected in the institution where I work.

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.

About Zimbra

2019-03-26

It blocks the mails from the third party systems which are not trusted by this zimbra collaboration suite.

Pros

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.

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

2020-05-26

The deployment was easy, I was able to easily connect the server to our LDAP server and import all of our users.

Pros

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.

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

2019-10-09

In addition, it can be used to share documents online.

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.

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.

Easy and quick installation, lots of good features.

2018-02-08

Pros

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.

Cons

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.

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.

Its a good product with low cost on-premise mailing and collaboration suite!!

2018-04-17

Our organization is based on Linux with end user using the same and we really don;t want to go MS Exchange option so we left with choices of Lotus Notes (Which is a very good yet expensive product), Novell groupwise and Zimbra.

Pros

It has very good Web base UI which is very easy to use.

Cons

The support is a bit so so maybe because of change of so many owners of the company. The web ui can use skin option to make it look and feel like different email platform in the market, e.g. if someone is use to outlook or gmail ui then a them/skin could provide that

Zimbra Collaboration Suite has brought me many benefits professionally speaking.

Pros

What I like most about the Zimbra Collaboration Suite is that it groups several services in a single package.

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.

Personally, I prefer Microsoft Exchange email, especially for the download of attachments.

2018-02-13

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.
