I am using the Zimbra Community Edition and want to sync my zimbra calendar with my android phone. Is there any free app that is using caldav? Until now i haven't found any.
Can i use VMware Zimbra for Android just for synchronising my zimbra calendar with my andoid calendar? Or can i only use it as hole program, so it is also downloading my mails etc.?
Thanks for your answers.
I'm using CalDav sync it's not free but it's just a couple of bucks. Working really whell and even syncs shared calendars. I use Business Calendar Free as calendar and this works really good.

SMTP is port 25. However, you should be using port 587 with TLS and username/password. Or if that's not available, port 465 with SSL and username/password may work.
(SMTP is only allowed if you're on a "trusted network" as defined in Zimbra OR if the email is being sent to an account in Zimbra.)
actually about andoroid
ITS WRONG that it uses only one database - technically yes but it splits it in different mailboxes
so having multiple accounts in one phone works well
second you should not use pop3 on android - use imap - or exchange active sync
für exchange you need networkeditions or liverpoolfans zimbrabackend with zpush - both works well and stable (zpush is real solid too)
however - exchange can have some falws on adroid -
everything bevore 2.3.4 on phones and 3.1 on tablets can have some issues
be aware 3.1 isnt a higher android than 2.3.5 - branch 3x is made for tables - these two branches will merge with android 4x)
on iphone the excahnge thing has also some flaws.. so
as an alternative you can use
imap for mail
caldav for caledar (latest in markets works pretty fine)
carddav for adressbook
second solution is better ni functionality but the exchange sync solution works better as push
i personally use exchange but i think hte caldav/carddav/imap is the future
(it supprts multiple caledars instead of one merged for example)
however in any cases use https for exchange /caldav/carddav
and use imaps and smtps for imap
android accepts self signes certificates too
do not use unencrypted mail
