In my recent Zimbra Desktop posts, I have failed to mention the awesome Desktop user interface or user experience (UX).
Do you currently use the Zimbra Web Client? In other words, do you open a browser to access your Zimbra account? If yes, than Zimbra Desktop will be very familiar for you.
Zimbra Desktop looks and works almost exactly like the Zimbra Web Client!
You will see all of the same tabs in Desktop, with all of the same content you see in the Web Client, as shown below.
You can link any mail account you have (Gmail, Yahoo, etc.) to Zimbra Desktop, and you will see data for them all!
Below is a snapshot of my Mail tab. You can see both of my accounts in the overview pane.
When you click Preferences, you will be able to change preferences for any account.
The main differences to be aware of are in the upper right corner.
– The Online icon shows when you are connected to the internet. If you are not connected, it will say Offline.
– The Help menu offers the same choices you know from Zimbra Web Client.
– The Setup link opens the Setup screen, where you can manage the mail accounts already linked to Zimbra Desktop and add new mail accounts, as shown below.
I hope you are enjoying this series on Zimbra Desktop. If you have questions about how to use it, please post them in the comments below. Thanks!
