Zimbra desktop with Exchange: Public folders?
I have installed Zimbra desktop so I can use it with our Exchange server.
Unfortunately I cannot find the Public Folders. I have seen old posts (3 years old) saying that Public folders will be available in a new release.
Can you tell me if I can use public folders when using Zimbra Desktop as an "exhange client"? I simply need them and, if they are not available, it would mean that Zimbra Desktop is not the solution for me/us.
microSoft EXchange. Gotta love it.
I wonder which of the giggling genius's at Microsoft thought of a way to use the acronym that way. LOL
Anyhow, that's the entire concept: As far as I know, others can "simulate" exchange mode operations but not actually duplicate it. The users in my office that use Zimbra (and love it, especially considering the price and how it did not affect the BUDGET and therefore THEIR SALARY) all claims it's truly in "Exchange Mode", but exchange mode doesn't actually use IMAP or POP3. Not my field, i've never had to focus on it.
However: Exchange Web DOES allow access to public folders if set up correctly. I'm not "guessing" here; I'm looking at MY (behind this window) Exchange Web with "tasks" ... then "Public Folders" and of course, under that come the actual folders themselves, fully populated.
There are concerns over public folders being sent outside the local subnet, but I am presently ON the local subnet. Those other concerns can be overriden in policy and allowed out to the entire net, but there is a security concern, of course.
This is a (yes, I'm behind on this server, but just a Few Years, right?) Microsoft Exchange 2000 box.
