    Hi, I have posted up issues I have with Zimbra desktop on http://www.zimbra.com/forums/general...ems-gmail.html.

    This problem is a show stopper for me so I am considering downgrading so that I can use email again.

    No response from anyone in Zimbra yet.

    I have just upgraded to 2.0.1 and there are a myriad of problems. The more serious ones include:

    * Duplicate download of emails
    * Needing to re-start Zimbra each time I want to download new emails

    I wish I had stayed with V1 as it was relatively stable.

    [QUOTE=dilshad;211511]I think it would help if you made your beta versions more widely/readily available to downgrade becomes less likely due to a more robust upgrade.[/QUOTE}Beta versions of the software are posted on the downloads page, how much more 'widely available' can they be?

    The "beta" of ZD2 has been and gone a long time ago, the current beta of the next release is available on the downloads page. If you're having problems I'd suggest you try that and make sure you read the documentation and the wiki articles on this release.

    If a new version you upgraded to has issues, let's try to resolve the issues. Going back in version usually cases more problems. If you must do that, you will probably have to delete all data on your computer and resync the account from remote server.
    Sorry, but I made the mistake up "upgrading" from 2.0 to 7.0. BIG mistake! The "upgraded" version was slow, butchered display of messages, and was generally junk! I went back to 2.0 and am happy with it. (Linux Version, Kubuntu 11.04).

    This post is in the wrong thread and about as useful as your original post about your 'upgrade'. There is little, or no, information that would allow anyone to offer you any advice and I d also guess that you didn't file any bug reports on the apparent problems. You're quite welcome to stay on the ZD 2 version and I guess that you realise there'll be no further upgrades or bug fixes on that version?
    Regards

    Thank you very much, Bill. You definitely WERE a help. Reading this reply, as well as several others you have sent to poor unsuspecting users, it made up my mind to DUMP ZD!

    Just the sort of response I'd expect given your lack of input, goodbye.

    What's so wrong with the newest version that everyone is wanting to go back to an older version.
