    Default Multiple Mailboxes in Zimbra Web Client?

    Hello-

    I recently installed Zimbra and must say it's a great product; however, the missing feature I've noticed so far which prevents me from deploying it is the lack of being able to use multiple mailboxes simultaneously from within the Zimbra web client.

    For example, in Exchange/Outlook you have the ability to have multiple mailboxes including the Inbox and Calendars loaded into the Folder List pane (assuming you have the necessary access to that account). I'm sure this works with Zimbra as well presuming you’re using Outlook but I'd prefer to dump Outlook in favor of the web client entirely.

    So, my questions:
    1) Are there any plans to view other account mailboxes and/or calendars from the Folders pane in Zimbra?
    2) Are there any plans to allow a From: field in the new message window which would allow you to send mail from any of the mailboxes listed in your Folders list?
    3) Are there any plans that would allow you to view another user's calendar to see where they might be? We use this extensively to figure out where an employee is.
    4) If any of these items are being considered, are the mailbox access and appearance within the Folders pane controllable by the administrator, user, or both?

    -Thanks,
    Jon

    1) Mail is something we plan to add. You an share/view/manage calendars and contacts today. Outlook obviously supports all 3.
    2) Yes. It's a highly requested/voted on feature.
    3) You can do this today with shared calendars.
    4) Both.

    We are using Zimbra Weblient as well, and would need to implement multiple mailboxes for certain users. Has this been implemented?
    If so, how can one enable it? I did not find any docmentation towards this.

    Hmm, no response - so does it mean this is not implemented?

    Sharing of folders and delegation of management of calendars etc is available in ZWC. You can also have multiple email addresses associated with the same mailbox.
    If you need to have different accounts, perhaps on different servers, that isn't implemented - although Zimbra Desktop may help you on that front.

    Hope that helps.

    Yes, multiple accounts (mailboxes) is what we need. The office personell needs to monitor group mailboxes for customer service requests, reclamations and orders management. Would be great to have such feature in the web client. Is it possibly in the to-do list for developers?

    In the meanwhile, we'll see how to implement it with the Desktop client.

    Oh, I did not know what that is. Thanks for the tip. Based on that I found the instructions, and got exactly what I needed. Maybe this feature is not well documented.

    By performing these steps, have you been able to send emails with attachments from a mailbox added to yours?
