Zimbra as general purpose mailretriever
Consider, being able to retrieve emails from external pop3 and imap accounts.
Configuring external email account retrieval through the zimbra web interface would take webmailing to another level.
1) Has it been considered already ?
2) Why / Why not ?
3) If considered.. When will it be released ?
I must admit, I have not investigated deep enough to say if the above features are already implemented, but as I have not seen it mentioned anywhere I assume it is not a running feature so far.
Have a nice weekend, Best regards Daniel Mersebak
Sorry Your link really does'nt answer my questions
Hello Kew. Maybe it is lack of understanding, but I don't see why your "link" (Which I had already viewed before posting) should answer any of my questions.
I am talking from a GUI users point of view. As far as I understand the guy, just do some batching from commandline, which is not what I ask for.
I was indeed not precise in the manner of explaining my question into details.
Regarding all my questions above, I imagined the features being controllable via GUI either as a user or and admin depending of what You have been allowed to do in the Zimbra app. Just similar to the features of Thunderbird or evolution. Put in short: Multiple mail account management.
Are my questions valid now, or do I still miss the point of Your link ?
Best regards, Daniel Mersebak
Multiple Mail Accounts are MANDATORY for Enterprises
Features such as the ability to have Multiple Mail Acconts are a necessity in todays enterprise mail servers.
Eg: A key player is out of action for a few months. Without multiple mail accounts, sombody has to login as that person and waste time loging in and out all day or using multiple mail clients ... Messy!
With multiple accounts, the key player's email is viewable by another person/people whilst they work on their own tasks as well - more efficient!
You already have multiple Calendars etc... Mail is just as important.
