It’s been a question that’s been asked in our forums since the time the iPhone was first announced: “Will Zimbra support the iPhone?” and “Does Zimbra support the iPhone?”
Yes! (to both)
Currently, you can connect to Zimbra using the Exchange server, POP3, or IMAP. If you have the iSync connector installed, you can sync contacts, calendars, and address books.
If you’re a fan of the Web Client, you’ll be happy to know that our Standard client is 100% compatible with the iPhone, providing all of the features of the Desktop, on the iPhone.
We’ve put together a wiki page on how to set up your iPhone to talk with the Zimbra server.
Kevin Kluge, Zimbra’s VP of Engineering, says: “We are committed to making the iSync connector, [which is] available in the Network Edition, work well in this environment. If over-the-air sync is added, we will examine what if any changes are needed to ZCS to have the iPhone successfully sync against a Zimbra server.”
We’re also gonna be at the iPhone Dev Camp July 6-8 at Adobe Systems in San Francisco. If you’re gonna be there, shoot me a note in the forums: username jholder.
We’ve attached a couple of images of Zimbra in Action on the iPhone. Click for a larger image.
The future? Well, that totally depends on Apple. :)
We want to know what you think! Take part in our poll for what feature Apple should enable first!
