I am starting to find a way to implement a solution for us Open Source admins to allow our users to sync their contacts and calendars from Outlook, Thunderbird and Mobile devices.
I am using Linux and the latest stable version of Zimbra.
So far, I have installed the Funambol PIM bundle.
I have managed to install a connector on a Windows XP machine with an Outlook 2003 Office installation.
Go here to get the Microsoft Outlook Connector, this gives a good feel for what is achievable.
Eventually, I hope to provide Blackberry, Palm and Mail For Exchange services to my clients. (links there for the connectors)
I am hoping this thread will just allow for us developers to add bits toward finding a documented solution.
The steps so far are as follows, assuming a current working install of zimbra:
select yes to start your servers.
Now visit http://localhost:8080/funambol
You can log in with:
Start the funamboladmin application by:
Go to File > Login and leave the settings as they are, and click Login.
In the settings change the admin password.
Thats it for now I am afraid, I have to do some real work now.
If anyone can help to install the Zimbra connector from this download page it would be most helpful for the community I am sure.
Cheers and I hope this helps start us off
