Multiple problems - installed latest version

Postby ChefHermes » Tue May 12, 2015 7:05 am

Hi,


I really like the idea of Zimbra Desktop, but it is flawed in so many ways that it almost makes it unusable.


Once you've navigated your way around the initial sign in & connecting your account ( I have a Google hosted domain), so instead of using the GMail sign in (because it didn't work repeatedly ) I used the imap settings instead.


Great, up and running, desktop now receiving emails :)


Now to sync calendars. Not a chance. When i made an entry & saved it, it just disappears!! Nothing from my google calendar has been sync'd either (Yes it's public & I know it's being shared, as it is working in Outlook)


Next the function which I really liked the idea of: Social media. So I read the instructions to download the Zimlet, then upload the ZIP file to the Zimbra desktop. Do all that, Zimbra acknowledges I've done it, restarts to activate zimlet and nothing changes (even checked the preferences to activate & nothing there)


There are other niggles as well ie the reading pane keeps resetting the width etc


I really like the idea of Zimbra, but unfortunately a browser & Outlook are far more dependable.

Hi ChefHermes,

We are working in the issues with Google Calendar, and I will try the issue with using a own domain over Google as I never tried.



Can you please also share with me the URL of the Zimlet that you downloaded?

There are just way too many problems with the Desktop version. I tried to copy & paste my email signature in, That didn't work either, so had to rewrite it & it was too long.



I wish you all the best with this, as it could be a really good thing, but it is so underdeveloped it shouldn't be out in the wild.



I've since deleted it from my system.

Hi ChefHermes,

I'm sorry to hear it, the truth is that we are working in some improvements for the next Zimbra Desktop Release 7.3 that will come out this summer, more or less.



But the big change will come with the Zimbra Desktop 8, but we still need more time for this.



I will keep you posted in a couple of weeks.



Thank you for your valuable feedback and give the Software a chance.



Best regards.
