    Default Creating an IMAP connection to a Zimbra mailbox

    Greetings....I'm an engineer with Cisco and I have multiple universities who are in varying adoption plans of Zimbra for email.

    Also...they are evaluating new IP-based phone systems and wish to evaluate Cisco and they are wondering what IMAP capability is available to/from Zimbra (for pulling voicemails into a universal inbox).

    Questions:

    1. Can Zimbra accept an IMAP connection without the use of the full Zimbra Desktop?

    2. If the client went with Outlook at the client end, could they pull Zimbra emails into an Outlook client via IMAP?

    Thanks in advance!

    Welcome to the forums.

    The Zimbra Collaboration Suite can accept IMAP connections from any external fat client, they could also use the Web UI it would be a better experience for them.

    Thanks for the WELCOME and for the reply, Bill.

    Can the Zimbra Web UI create an OUTBOUND IMAP connection to a system to PULL messages in?

    I know you can't promise any SUPPORT of specific products, but my thought is to determine if the Web UI could pull voicemail messages from our Unity (voicemail) server.

    Just thinking outloud.

    Thanks again!

    Greg

    Yes, it can certainly pull email from external accounts (POP or IMAP). That's a per-user option and is set in the user Preferences tab.

    Hi, Bill....sorry for not replying....I've been out of the office lately and we were finishing Cisco's fiscal year last week.

    Would there be any interest at Zimbra in facilitating a "proof of concept" with the Cisco Unity team so that we could show the interroperability?

    The upside (for both companies) the way I see it is we could show the interroperability and build some customer success stories....and then let the positive momentum help both companies close more deals.

    Let me know your thoughts....or let me know who within Zimbra could help facilitate this.

    Thanks very much!

    Greg

    Our university has Cisco Unity for voicemail and Zimbra for email/calendaring deployed all across the Campus. We would be interested in integrating the two. Is there any progress on this front? How about integrating Unity Connection 7.x and Zimbra 5?

    I have a large University who has migrated to Zimbra. I noticed these posts are several years old. Is anyone aware of any integrations into Cisco Call Manager, Unity, Jabber, etc.?

    Check the ZIMLETS GALLERY. I know I have seen a Zimlet that allows for integration with asterisk.
