    Default

    Go to Options' Global tab and check the box that says "Use Zimbra Desktop as default mail application".

    It does not work though... I checked the box and even restarted Zimbra Desktop. Went to a website and clicked on an email link and nothing happened. Then went into firefox setting and set it up as the default mail program there and still nothing happens?? Any Ideas?

    OK this is weird.. What it is actually doing now is opening the web page of our zimbra and doing mailto functions that way... How do I make the desktop handle the mailto's??

    Default Any updates?

    Hello, I am trying to set zimbra as the email client in ie, but it does not show up on the drop down list. It is set as my default email under the global option in zimbra. If I click an email link in ie, it tries to open outlook.

    Default Assinging Zimbra as my default mail program

    When I go to "preferences-global-system defaults" the box is not active. Is there some problem that I should know about? I am using Vista, and have Outlook software which was my original default. If I try to change the default at the control panel level, I am also not allowed the option of choosing Zimbra.
