For a distribution list in Zimbra 7 I can activate the setting "Notify new members of available shares" in the admin GUI.

The most recent Zimbra manual I found ( states this should still be possible in Zimbra 8.0.3, but I'm unable to find this setting in my test installation of Zimbra 8.0.4. Neither did I find a bug report about this.

Did I misunderstand or miss something?

The notification works if the setting is done in the CLI:
zmprov mdl distributin-list@domain zimbraDistributionListSendShareMessageToNewMembers TRUE

Thanks for any helpful insights.
