I realize the Network Edition only allows for the Outlook connector, not the OpenSource edition. Is that just for asynchronous stuff? Is it possible to use Outlook to connect to the Zimbra Server via Pop3 to pull down the emails?
I've attempted to do this on the OpenSource edition and I get the outlook test messages just fine but it seems to bomb when trying to log into the incoming pop3 server.

The whole sync thing, calendar, contact lists, etc.

Of course.

But doing this, you're using ZCS as a POP3 server and Outlook as a POP3 reader...

Thanks for the reply. Is there any trick to using it as a reader? I seem to be having trouble getting it to log on to the mail server.

Username and password are correct. Running the OpenSource GA version (3.1?)

The exact Outlook error:
Log onto incoming mail server (POP3): The specified server was found, but there was no response from the server. Please verify that the port and SSL information is correct. To access these settings close this dialog, then click More Settings and click on the Advanced tab.

Further investigation reveals that I'm able to connect to my mailbox via Outlook (POP3) but only if I enable clear text logins. Any idea why SSL might fail?

Well, you can uncheck Clear text logins in the AdminUI
SSL/TLS-Mode can be tricky sometimes.

Here's a good article:
