Managing Zimbra Mobile

Managing Zimbra Mobile
Zimbra Mobile is the Zimbra synchronization program enabled on the mailbox server that provides over-the-air synchronization of mail, contacts, calendar and task data and device security policy enforcement between the mobile device and an account on the mailbox server.
Devices use the native software and UI that is installed on the device to sync. Zimbra Mobile is compatible with IPhone, IPod Touch, Windows Mobile 5 (WM5), and 6 (WM6) devices, and many other phones that support the Active Sync protocol.
The ActiveSync™ protocol is used to configure and sync the Zimbra mailbox server with the native client that is used on a user’s device.
The following diagram shows the flow of data from the server to the mobile.
