    Default Accessing Zimbra services through ReST API

    This is a general question about Zimbra and accessing mailbox features. It is possible to set up or manage a mailbox in Zimbra purely through ReST services interface and not through the Administrator interface.

    We are looking at adding a mailserver functionality to user profiles, that would be associated with Atom feeds.

    We need the user profile to be able to add and configure a mail account on the mail server transparently through rest services.

    For the most part, the REST API is useful for acting on data in an existing mailbox. So that's retrieving data in different formats and importing data (like calendar appointments + contacts).

    To handle more administrative functions (and user mailbox functions), check out the SOAP API. Documentation is is found in ZimbraServer/docs/soap*.txt (soap.txt handles user commands, soap-admin-txt administrative commands, etc).

    And an FYI: here is a link to the REST API Reference (methods, the different return formats and authentication):

    ZCS 6.0:Zimbra REST API Reference - Zimbra :: Wiki

    And this thread might be useful as well. It has some pseudo code and a high-level picture of using the SOAP API. Note: when submitting SOAP commands, you can submit in the SOAP XML format or as JSON (and get the return in SOAP XML or JSON). This is described in soap.txt:
