    Default Zimbra integration with file-server

    Hello,

    Please forgive me for asking something that probably have been asked many times before, but I have not been able to find the answer to my question in other posts, so here I go...:

    In production today we have the mail-server Desknow installed on the same machine that we use as our file-server.
    With this solution, it is possible, when using webaccess to the mail-server, to attach files from our file-server when sending mails, without having to download the attachments to the senders local computer first. This is especially important for those of our users who are having slow connections. The file-server access is an integrated part of Desknow.

    I have now installed the community edition of Zimbra, (not on the same computer as our file-server) and wonder if it is possible to do the same with Zimbra as with Desknow?

    Another important(?) thing is that we have a workgroup-enviroment locally, not a domain.

    Our File-server is a Ubuntu 8.04 with Samba-shares.
    The Zimbra-installation (which is up and running, at least for testing) is also on Ubuntu 8.04 if it makes any difference.

    Thank you for any response!

    If the files on your fileserver are available to the client as a share then you can attach them to outgoing email.

    Uxbod, thank you! :-)

    Phoenix:, thank you for responding!
    I feel silly, but I am not sure if I understand you.
    It is possible to access the Samba-share on our file-server through Zimbra's web-interface?
    -Or do you mean my users have to have for instance a vpn-connection to our file-server and then add attachments from a mapped drive on the users computers?

    (I wish English was my native language...)

    No, I mean the client computer must have the file server accessible as a share. Zimbra can't access the file server natively.

    I was afraid that was what you ment.
    Seems like I'm stuck with Desknow for the moment...
    Thanks anyway!
