Hi Lucinda, I can understand your frustration. I learned many unfortunate things the hard way using Zimbra Desktop. I have been using ZD for almost 3 years now ever since I converted from Windows to Linux o/s completely. At the time, ZD version 2.X was highly praised and was the only feature rich email for Linux so I went for it. It actually worked quite well including all the features. ZD 2.x and Ubuntu 10.04 at the time was the perfect combo email client/linux os...until ZD 7.X came out. Since then I've had issues with ZD and became active here on the forum asking questions. Honestly, I guess it is the very reason why i'm active on this forum: because i'm having these issues otherwise I'd just be sitting happily at my desk if my ZD was humming perfectly. Oh well...
was: ZD 7.1.2 Build 10978 on Ubuntu 11.10 32-bit
then upgraded to: 7.1.4 Build 11273 on Ubuntu 11.10 (03/19/2012)
then upgraded to: 7.1.4 GA Build 11299 on Ubuntu 11.10 (04/16/2012)
Now officially migrated from ZD 7.1.4 GA Build 11299 to Thunderbird 11.0.1
