    That's sort of my point. You say it takes a long time to launch Zimbra, but that , on it's own is not enough to made a judgement. Hence the suggestion of comparing the launch times of Zimbra to that of another well known email application, if for example, Outlook 2003 launches fully on your machine in five seconds, then we know there's something up with Zimbra. If it takes over a minute, then all is well with the software and you need a faster client PC!

    Either way, 4.5 is GA today, so get that installed and revel in the speed improvements

    that's right. The default webclient is heavy to load.

    Two solutions:

    1- use a client (thunderbird, outlook,...) it's MUCH faster than the webclient.
    2- Install 4.5 version of Zimbra and use the tiny HTML client

    Going to have to disagree with you here AimanA. The majority of processing that is perceived as "slowness" with Zimbra is done client-side. For example - my own main Zimbra box is a PIII 500mhz with 512MB ram. My initial load time at login on a fresh 3Ghz client machine is about 30 seconds during which time the client cpu is pegged and the server hovers at about 40%.

    Yup, I figured I was nit picking Like I said before, it wasn't a big deal and there may have been some tweaks to speed initial load times.

    BUT

    Since Zimbra 4.5.0 is out now...I'll be upgrading asap.

    Thanks to all who posted in an effort to help me out!
