What is the problem with your software? It has been adopted by Stanford and some of us are having frequent problems with it. A member of the Faculty Senate, I am going to ask for a reconsideration, or a simple bypass, given your inability to fix local bugs. We are in a cost-cutting mode anyway.
Welcome to the forums :)
I am sorry that you feel that way :( though your comments would be better directed to your account manager.
Yes, blame the locals. They have been in touch with you. I am dead annoyed with the hours wasted with this new email thing, and this annoyance will have public consequences.
Perhaps your frustration should then be directed to your internal management team to speak with Zimbra again.
Just you wait, petit malin. We know the game you play, pretend the issue is on the other side.
My frustration will go straight to our Provost, and we will see who gets squeezed
Have a nice day and please feel free to raise a support issue regarding your concerns.
Some idea of what your problem is might help rather than some intemperate rant. The correct place for raising problems is via the Support Portal or, as has already been mentioned, via your Account Manager at Zimbra.

Additionally, we have identified a number of issues and improvements specific to Stanford's needs and use cases. We have provided, and continue to provide, improvements to our platform to address these issues.
Can you provide me with an e-mail outlining the issues you have experienced?
We can review your issues against the ones we are working with your IT team. One, to make sure we have your specific issues on our radar, and two, to provide you with an estimate of when we can put your specific issues to rest.

... a voice of sanity after the young men delegated to moderating such discussions tried to sit on (not quite kill), collectively, the messenger. :rolleyes::o A bad idea if the messenger can defend himself or herself on a real battlefield (at Stanford).
Thanks for this. It is not quite my task to beta-test the local application of Zimbra to Stanford (I am paid by the institution for other tasks) . The long and the short of this is that if the software cannot be adapted to local conditions, people will simply have their email forwarded to and through other applications and/or accounts. So on paper there will be "Zimbra at Stanford"; in reality there will be minimal use.
Ranting on a public with no details to substantiate your claims is counter productive.
As moderators we are happy to help you overcome your issues, but you need to tell us what the problems are first ;)
