    Default password protection

    Hello,

    Is there a way that I can require a password in order to open Zimbra desktop? I don't want anyone just opening the program and looking at my email.

    Please help.

    If it is not possible on Zimbra Desktop is that feature available on their other products?

    Regards,
    Charles

    You should password protect your login to the PC and any screen saver that you have enabled.

    Welcome to the forums,

    Vote for these RFEs:
    Bug 40735 - require password at startup for zdesktop for zcs accounts
    Bug 27005 - Use master password to protect all other passwords
    Bug 14713 - encrypt offline messages

    Even though you can still find/search the store folder on disk, a few want the password ones to be implemented earlier anyways - as someone dropping by and navigating the store isn't as 'easy' as opening Zimbra Desktop. (It's really a false sense of security though.)

    Current best practice is to set a OS level password (login/screensaver & not share accounts), plus OS encryption or storage/disk encryption.

    We have already taken several steps towards these goals in the 2.0 betas :
    Bug 27936 - offline : Multiple Zimbra Desktop users on one machine
    Bug 15608 - install application vs data location
