    Default alternate use for zimbra desktop

    If we have an office full of Zimbra users all connecting to a hosted Zimbra service somewhere, would it possible to use the Z-Desktop software or some derivative of it, on a single machine in the office, as a local cache for all the users to connect to? I think this would be a great feature to avoid installing software on each desktop pc in the office and still get the benefits of a local cache, performance boost and offline work for periods when the office internet connection may be down.
    Any thoughts on this?

    Hi, the intention of the zdesktop product is for it to work as a desktop email application. It is equivalent to something like Outlook or Thunderbird. It is not designed to be a site caching mechanism.

    I assume the reason you are looking for a caching server as you describe is because you don't have good connection with the hosted Zimbra Server. If that's the case, please consider running a Zimbra Server locally for your office.
