Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)
Before you can enable 2FA on Zimbra Desktop, it must be enabled in your Zimbra Web Client account.

Zimbra Two-Factor authentication requires an upgrade of your Network Edition License Key, which is free of charge if you have a valid License. Contact your regional sales manager, and click here for more information.

When you try to add an account that is already protected with Zimbra 2FA, or if you enable 2FA in the Zimbra Web Client and later open that account in Zimbra Desktop, you will be prompted for a code.
