    Question Public Folders

    Does Zimbra have email enabled Public folders? or even Public Folders at all.

    'Public' as in external web or 'public' but internal to organization?

    For everyone internally, it's possible with shares. (See below quote/directions.)

    There's no HTML REST URL for mailboxes yet: Bug 16063 – Sharing Mail folder to External Guests/Public.

    You can publish an server/home/user@domain.com/Inbox.rss but we didn't want people confused by public trying to hit Inbox.html like you can for Calendar.html, so we disabled it in the folder share dialog (but can be shared via CLI/SOAP/JAVA).

    Others:
    Bug 22660 – Allow non-user "public" folders
    Bug 32052 – Public Folders

    You can send to a distribution list (group) that holds all your employees
    everyone@domain.com (that can or can't receive mail depending on your preferred ease) or share with all members of domain.com.

    (r)ead - search, view overviews and items
    (w)rite - edit drafts/contacts/notes, set flags
    (i)nsert - copy/add to directory, create subfolders
    action (x) - workflow actions, like accepting appointments
    (d)elete - delete items and subfolders, set \Deleted flag
    (a)dminister - delegate admin and change permissions on shares

    zmmailbox -z -m theshare@domain.com modifyFolderGrant /Folder account
    user@domain.com rwx

    zmmailbox z -m user@domain.com createMountpoint --view appointment "/Vacation
    Calendar" vacationcal@domain.com /VacationDates

    You can do any of the following [account |group |domain
    |all |public| guest
    ] followed by the permissions like r, rw,
    rwix, rwixd, rwixda, none, etc.

    (You can share the root / on an account see bug 26465 &
    Bug 24804 – Share entire mailbox in one click.)

    It's for internal use, what about email enabled public folder (in other words, send an email to an address and lands in a folder not a mailbox)

    If you use CLI( control it by java code), you can automount a share folder for a people --> with that, you'll have public folder function in zimbra
