    Smile Zimbra as private & group calendar system

    Hi community.

    From what I have read about Zimbra it is a solid and stable collaboration tool. Before I start testing I would like to hear if the following setup is possible and may be is running somewhere successfully.

    I am currently searching for a multi user calendar system that allows each user to have his/her own calendar. Additionally there should be a group calendar showing all public entries.
    As client for accessing private and group calendar I want to use Thunderbird & Lightning via CalDav.
    Working reminders would be nice too.
    The mail-system part of Zimbra is not of interest as I already have a working IMAP server...

    Does Zimbra support this combination of features or are there any known problems?

    Thanks in advance,

    You can create secondary calendars within any account and then share them to others, so this wouldn't be a problem other than any limitations of Lightning (and it does have some limitations last I checked; mainly I recall it doesn't handle offline mode very well).

    Reminders also work, although I personally use iCal and the Zimbra web client, not Lightning.

    If you're not going to use Zimbra's mail (or other non-Calendar features), though, you might look elsewhere such as Apple's (free) Darwin calendar server or DAViCAL. But Zimbra's mail is very nice and you might find it worth switching from your current IMAP server.
