Introducing Zimbra Desktop Modern

Did you know Zimbra has its own Desktop email client called Zimbra Desktop? With Zimbra Desktop you can take your email, contacts and calendar on the road and work online and offline from your Windows laptop or Macbook.

Setting up Zimbra Desktop is easy, just download the installer, connect to your server and log-in to your Zimbra Account.

Once connected you can see the contents of your Zimbra account, updated in real time:

By default Zimbra Desktop will download and remember all the content (email, contacts, calendar) that you have displayed on the screen. If you want to go offline you can set a specific sync date. Zimbra Desktop will download all content from your Zimbra account from the selected date up to the current time each time you are online. By setting the sync date you can be sure to be able to access all your data when going offline:

Zimbra Desktop is available for download at

    Thanks for the post.
    Is Linux client support planned? Either binary or flatpak?
    Thank you.

    Well, the most important thing is missing for those with huge boxes, so we have to use other email clients with limited functionality. Zimbra Team’s still hasn’t noticed that local email archiving is extremely important.
    Hope to see this feature soon…

    Hello friends!

    Why is Zimbra desktop stating “Please enter valid URL” when I enter my server’s hostname (“”) ?

    .hosting is a valid TLD (see for details)

      Zimbra Desktop does not validate based on the tld. Please see if your URL is correct. In a web browser go to in your example. Zimbra should say something like HTTP ERROR 400 HTTP method GET is not supported by this URL…SoapServlet.

    Why is always shown “Invalid server. Please try again.” ? Is there any requirement to use it? Should Zimbra Network Edition?
