Zimbra News and Information

Zimbra Collaboration Suite - Upgrade -

During Spring Break - in the evening and overnight hours of March 19th - we will be performing a version upgrade on the Zimbra system.  We will be moving from Zimbra version 7 to version 8.  The new Zimbra 8 contains several feature enhancements and bug fixes.  While the features are still familiar to experienced Zimbra users, the "look and feel" for Zimbra 8 is significantly improved and different-looking.  We've arranged online tutorials and face-to-face training that outlines the differences and the new features.

 

Here is a sneak preview of some of the feature enhancements available with the new version:

  • The search function now defaults to looking "everywhere".  Searches can be limited to a particular folder if desired.
  •  Enhanced message composition - The compose window now contains more "word processor"-like functionality... including the ability to insert images into the message.
  • Easier filter creation using the new "Activity Stream" feature.
  • Delegate to Send As: “Users can set their account preferences to delegate authority to  another user to send messages as if came from them (Send As) or send messages on behalf of the user. When a delegated user composes a message for the user, they select the user’s name in the From address drop-down menu.”
  • When creating meetings and other calendar entries, conflicts are much easier to detect.  Suggested resolutions for scheduling conflicts is also more intuitive.
  • Much improved and more flexible printing options for the calendar.
  • CHAT with other Zimbra users in real time
