    Default Offline access

    So, let's assume I use a laptop and I'm a big fan of Zimbra. I run into trouble with my ability to access the internet while I'm away from any decent Wi-Fi hotspots and my UMTS/EVDO coverage is non-existant.

    Does this mean that I can not access my email or contacts at all? I'd like offline support so that I can ensure that I never lose the ability to pull up my calendar or contacts.

    Cool?

    For offline support we have IMAP and POP today. We are looking to expand this in the future with other options.

    Default Offline copy with SOAP and a client side Java app

    A sensible architecture for this would seem to me to be a client side Java app that communicates with the server through SOAP to create an offline cache since last sync.

    AJAX is never going to provide client side persistence without a lot of headaches I would have thought.

    Default Take a look at thunderbird for offline ideas

    Thunderbird uses XUL(instead of HTML) + Javascript + RDF(datasource) to handle local data while refreshing from the server.

    The real problem for offline storage lies in permissions for writing via a browser to a local file. We have done quite a bit of XUL and web app development, I but I (personally) have never done any kind of web app that needs to write to a file.

    I'm sure others can tell you if that is possible.

    Yes a seperate java app, or XUL are options. We also are working on a MAPI provider for Outlook for those would rather use Outlook.
