    Default Share Calendar & Contacts

    Zimbra *looks* amazing and I was able to install it without a single glitch. However, I am confused as to how one can share their individual calendar/contacts with other users. Outlook/Exchange makes such a thing pretty easy, but I am at a loss as to how to pull this off with Zimbra. Is such a thing possible at this time?

    We are actually in the middle of implementing a pretty rich access control model in the server that will enable all kinds cool features around sharing :-)

    I too echo everyones kudos on a job well done... VERY neat and promising product. I already have servers allocated

    Hopefully your cool list also includes GAL hooks for the scheduling appts in the calendar. Remembering folks email addresses is a drag

    Yes the GAL hooks work for both email compose and calendar.

    Thanks Kevin, the current version of calendar seems to do lookups to the local contact list, but not the GAL. (eg., type in lastname in apt attendees..will show alternatives from contact list..but not from GAL if contact list is empty.) Could just be a 3.0 thing, not sure...just letting u know.

    Also replys to apt request should include a "propose alternative time/date" in addition to "accept, decline, tenative". Also a reply comment option would be cool... tenative w/comment, etc. This is very useful to explain WHY your tenative or decline a meeting request .

    apt = appointment in my shorthand above.

    There is an 'Edit Reply' in the menu. If you select this you can reply as normal but edit the response.

    Default How does one collaborate without sharing anything?

    I read that Zimbra is a collaboration server but I cant see where we collaborate other than send email? Without Calendar, contact, mailbox sharing how do you justify the 'collaboration' part of the description? Unless an IMAP server could be described as a collaboration server? Easy install, good frontend, not sure how it can be used anywhere? Have I missed something significant? I hope so!

    Thanks

    Kevin

    Default it's a coming

    sharing is in the next release and (hate to tease, but) looks very slick.

    Default Sharing....

    Thanks for the response, can you share the next release date?

    I have tried OpenXchange, Opengroupware and although good they are not solid enough on the install and config controls - however they do share stuff!
