    I just checked out Thunderbird. It doesn't appear to be able to sync with the gmail calendar so it's of no use to me. As a mail only client it seemed pretty nice, but I'll be sticking with ZDesktop.

    Default Checkout the Lightning addon for Thunderbird

    Hi PeterSteele

    Please checkout the Lightning and Provider for Google Calendar addons for Thunderbird.

    Lightning adds calendaring to Thunderbird and Provider for Google Calendar does the synchronizing..

    We're are the mist of migrating from Outlook/Exchange to Google Apps. We too have experienced the extreme slow IMAP handling in Outlook.

    I've been evaluation a Thunderbird/Google Apps setup...

    But realized the Zimbra Desktop could replace Thunderbird and would like to get experienced Zimbra Desktop users evalution of Thunderbird compared to ZD.

    I'll have to check it out. One thing I did notice with Thunderbird in my bried look at it is that it supported pasting of graphics into an email message, which for me is an incredibly useful feature. Hopeful they'll add support for this in Zimbra.

    Peter mentioned that a primary reason that his company is using zimbra is because it synchs calenders with gmail calender. I don't see it working.

    One account is a plain gmail account. Zimbra lets me turn on calender synch. But a day later, entries I've made to the zimbra calender are not in gmail.

    The other account is a google apps gmail account. Trying to turn on synch via account setup results in an error "Unable to access calendar service. You will not be able to sync your calendar"
