    Default Moving contacts to other folders or user access to GALs

    This was what I read in the "Zimbra Mail Help" (round icon on the left side):
    You can move contacts out of the Contacts folder and into another folder.
    But it does not work. I can drag and drop a contact to the Trash folder, but not to other folders. Isn't this the functionality meaned by the above sentence?

    How can I put contacts into folders or groups to get a simple and small mailing list (friends, employees etc.)? Another option would be to have user manageable GALs.

    Thanks a lot

    At this time contacts in the web ui only have a single folder. If you use the Outlook connector you can move contacts into folders. In a future release we'll add the ability to move contacts around and have multiple folders in the web ui.

    Thanks a lot for this information. The help should be more specific on this point, because we now switched to Zimbra and can't group our more than 800 contacts. Okay, I'll take a look if we can do something with Outlook.

    Wait - the Outlook Connector only works with the paid version, not the OSS one, right?

    Have a nice weekend

    you could add tags to the contacts and then search like this:

    tag:"customer" in:"contacts"

    and you can save the search which is more or less like a folder
