    Default Mac OS Server and Windows Clients

    Hello,
    I have succesfully installed and used a Zimbra Server on Linux and using it with Outlook clients on Windows. Everything works (calendar, contacts, mails and so on).
    Now I am wondering if anyone knows about any issues with Zimbra installed on a Mac OS Server when using Windows Clients (Zimbra Desktop, Browser, Mozilla and so on). I believe there shouldn't be any problems with having windows clients and Mac OS servers, but just wondering if there are any issues before going on. Thanks in advance.

    I've not heard of any and wouldnt expect to see any. All communication to and from the server is done with standard protocols; soap requests, pop3, imap, http etc. This abstraction from the server OS should mean no problems, after all most people will be using windows clients with a linux server for the host.

    The only issue I can think of is that ZCS doesn't work at all on OS X 10.6... support for this now seems to have slipped to ZCS 6.0.7

    There is also a feature or two not available for the Mac OS X version. See Zimbra - Product Editions and note the asterisk.
