    Question Zimbra chat capability with zimbra webmail?

    Is there a Zimlet that allows Zimbra webmail users to chat with each other?

    If so, is it a support zimlet, or open source, or?

    What kind of popup notification is available if such a chat functionality does exist?

    Can anyone from Zimbra comment on whether this will be something supported in Zimbra Next?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi,
    As far as i know, the Only Free CHAT Fully integrated with Zimbra (designed for 8.X working on 7 and 6 ) is ZeXtras CHAT
    It seems to perfectly match to you requirement.

    Current Zimbra does not have chat capability. I have not tried ZeXtras Chat but hope this will serve your purpose.

    There is no official Zimbra feature to interact with a chat server, the only currently available solution is the ZxChat zimlet mentioned earlier.

    Hi Bill,

    It looks like there used to be some chat functionality in earlier versions of Zimbra, but it was taken out. Is that true, and if so, what was the reasoning at that point?

    Yes that's correct, it was removed from ZCS 8.x - the reason was that it was a beta quality feature and while it worked for many users it caused severe problems in some installations. The aim was to replace it with a web interface to interact with another (separately installed) XMPP server - there should be several RFEs in bugzilla if you're interested in voting on them.
