    Question IMAP & Documents (sharing)

    Hi, I still got 2 questions even the ZCS 4.5.5 is working now...

    1/ IMAP issue - While using the IMAP client to send/receive mails, I found that the pre-configured distribution list (i.e. allusers@group.domainB.com) is not working but OK via webui...... does the dist. list is ONLY works via WebUI??

    2/ I tried to share a "notebook" with others with manager or viewer privilege, but it always need to *ASK* others to accept or decline the offer..... Indeed, I want to make some public shared locations/folders for the memo/announcement documents, so can I just force this sharing to others without notify the users (it's OK if need to do this by using the admin a/c) ?

    Many thanks~

    I don't understand what you mean by 'it doesn't work'.

    You don't need to do anything other than share it as 'Public' (that will be for view only), you see that when you edit the properties.

    1/ That means, the email could be sent out but NO ONE received it if I sending the emails to the distribution list in the imap client (i.e. Thunderbird). On the other hand, the email could be reached to the users' mailbox if I sent the email via the webUI to the same distribution list. I don't know why.....

    2/ If this is the case, I have to share the notebook as 'public' if I dun want others to be asked accept or decline... but the shortcoming is this notebook is PUBLIC to everyone even they don't have zimbra a/c..... for the balance of security issue and the convenience side, can I have the option to disable the "asking" when share the notebook to others with "viewer" or even "manager" privilege??

    Thanks~~

    When you send via the IMAP client to the dist list, can you post your /var/log/zimbra.log?

    It's only 'public' to people that you give the url to. I don't see what's wrong with users getting an accept/decline email, if it's a problem then search bugzilla and see if there's an already filed RFE and vote, if there isn't create one and vote on it.

    jholder: The distribution list is working now on the IMAP client, probably something's wrong before... thx~

    phoenix: In our case, we just want to force some shared notebook to the retail shops and it's not necessary to ask them to accept or decline~ So it would be better for administrator could forcing the users to accept the shared notebook! Besides, I have tested the public sharing, and it seems the users could ONLY view the notebook contents via the url, not in the webUI internal....... which is not a centralized solution to do so..... anyway, I will searching in the bugzilla and look for any workaround..... thx~

    Start by either sharing the folder using the zmmailbox command or by explicitly saying "do not send a message" in the "Share Folder" dialog.

    Then use zmmailbox to add a link to the shared folder in each of the share-ees mailboxes.

    oh.... thanks~ It sounds good~ But where can I have a more deep reference of the usage? Even I searching in the admin guide, it just a brief description of the usage and a simple example..... does there any deep technote of the usage of all of the zm cmd?

    I have shared a wiki folder as "Memo for ALL" under admin@domainB.com account and tell it Do Not send a message.... but now how should I create a wiki link for user david@domainB.com?

    I tried this one but failed ---
    zmmailbox -z -v -m david@domainB.com cm -V wiki "Memo for ALL" admin@domainB.com "Memo for ALL"

    Many thanks~
