I installed the Outlook connector this morning (ZimbraOlkConnector-5.0.16_GA_2921_5.0.2988.16, with zcs-NETWORK-5.0.16_GA_2921.RHEL5.20090429092842.tgz trial). I wanted to make sure Zimbra would allow an outlook user to see someone's availability while scheduling an appointment. It simply showed "no data available" for that user with a "/ / / / / / /" bar all the way across.
I also found that my other two configured email accounts had disappeared and were no longer available.
So, I used Windows "delete a program" to uninstall the Zimbra Outlook Connector. After uninstalling it, Outlook would no longer start up, and popped up an error dialog that said "Cannot open your default e-mail folders. An unexpected error has occurred. MAPI was unable to load the information service LSMSSP.DLL. Be sure the service is correctly installed and configured."
I searched the system, and that DLL was *gone*. I uninstalled and reinstalled Office 2007 to recover and get Outlook working again, but it still gets the same error and will not proceed beyond it. Close the error dialog, outlook exits.
I should add that the workstation I tried this on was running Windows 7 RC fully patched with Outlook 2007 fully patched.
Is this normal behavior? Management here makes heavy use of Outlook calendar functions, and if we are to purchase Zimbra it's going to have to show a prospective attendee's availability and it can NOT whack any other email profiles, or my name is going to be mud (it is currently "system administrator").
I have searched in this forum and although many people have encountered this, none of the solutions presented have enabled me to regain the use of outlook 2007.
I am not a happy camper.
