    Default Zimbra Causing Keyboard Problems

    I've been dealing with keyboard issues for months and I could find the cause.
    I formatted my machine last week and reinstalled everything.
    Once again I had the same problem.

    No matter what I type the keys will simply create the pattern "1234567890-=qwertyuiop[]asdfghjkl;'`\zxcvbnm,./-+\".

    For example typing welcome in any windows application would give me "1234567", if I typed it again I would get "890-=qw"
    When I've made it through the whole sequence the pattern will start again.

    I accidentally discovered Zimbra was the cause.
    I clicked on the insert url button and the problem started.
    Once I got my keyboard back to normal I clicked insert url it started again, problem started again.
    I rarely use the insert url button so it's not that can't be the only Zimbra function causing it.


    The only way I've found to get out of the problem is to launch a new IE 8 window. I know Zimbra using Java heavily so I thought maybe it uses IE too? Or perhaps launching IE resets something Java related?


    I've stopped using the Zimbra client and disabled the service. I have not had the problem since.

    That is really strange. Can you try reproducing in Firefox? Go to the Setup page, and clicking on "Open in Web Browser" link at the bottom. ZD will launch in your default browser. If its not Firefox, copy the URL and paste into Firefox.

    I'll try it.
    But I'm not actually using the web interface, I'm using the actual windows application interface.

    I just happened to notice that launching IE fixes it.

    Okay alot of trial and error and I think it's fixed.
    Zimbra and the TeamViewer(teamviewer.com) client didn't like each other.

    I removed TeamViewer and I'm now running Zimbra again. So far so good.

    Question about 2.0, is their an option to switch the folder list back to the old tab style from 1.0. Where each account and it's own tab

    Thanks,

    Kenny
