    Question Global address list?

    The Zimbra desktop seems to work fine, but it's missing a big feature. The global address book isn't available when I do a new mail! It works fine if I use the web browser. But I'm trying out the desktop version as an alternative for my users that have Outlook 2000 and get to Zimbra via IMAP. And to cut off the Zimbra admins early...no, updating to 2003 isn't currently an option.

    Yes, it's fixed a few beta releases ago. Please try it.

    I tried it with today's download of Zimbra Desktop for Windows, and it didn't work. Autocomplete works, but the GAL itself is empty when I click on the contacts tab.

    We don't show GAL in Contacts - that's the same for both ZD and the web ajax client.

    You can do auto-complete and search with GAL.

    Shouldn't they show up when you click the To: button when composing an email? I can search for users, but the entire GAL does not show up like in the web client.

    It's this bug that we just fixed recently. It would be available in 1.0.1.

    I assume you're talking about bug 3630? According to that bug report the resolution was tested and working on ZD build 1557, I can certainly see the GAL when using To: in compose. Do you still have a problem with it?

    It saves having to ask each time you post, could you update your forum profile with the output of:

    Code:
    zmcontrol -v
