    Default About mailbox sharing.

    Hi all,

    Is there a possibility to setup mailbox sharing or/and mailbox right delegation in 4.5 ?

    I believe not natively. May i'm wrong, may it exist a kin of "workaround".

    Thank you for your help.

    Friendly
    Michael.

    Hi,
    Mailbox sharing is not currently a feature, however, we plan on introducing it in a future release.

    If you mean the web UI then bugzilla is a great resource.

    In that case, the important thing about a bugzilla entry is the "Target Milestone" which is the release that a fix is targetted for. In this bug it's GunsNRoses, that's the next major release but one i.e. 5.0 is next and 5.5 (probably) is the one is targeted for. It's also important that you note whether the bug is fixed, assigned etc. - this one is assigned. As an approximate schedule we've been seeing major release about every three months, IIRC.

    That should be enough to get you going. Be aware that all the details of intended fixes and product dates are subject to change and are at the discretion of the Zimbra team. You can have some input to a bug by 'voting' on it, it adds weight to the bug but doesn't guarantee you'll get it fixed to your schedule.

    here's a dumb question, but the way it seems to be worded in the bug and this thread leads me to believe that it is not possible to share/delegate mailboxes to other users with the Web interface... is there another way to do it via the CLI?

    Many of our users want to be able to delegate parts of their email boxes to other users's (ie Directors to their secretary's) and we currently do with our IMAP server. The users use Mozilla Thunderbird as a client. Maybe its possible to make the correlation via the CLI and have it work in thunderbird and just not the Web gui?

    Like everyone else in the Bugzilla, this is literally the ONLY thing holding us back from actually purchasing your software. Its just a very sad thing to see all these great features and innovation, but a small yet extremely vital part is missing.

    We currently use Egroupware and I am trying so hard to get away from it and into Zimbra,,, but until this one little feature is there. I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place.

    Lets close our eyes and pray for a hotfix patch instead of having to wait for a whole new release.

    No, it's not available for the Web UI yet. It is available in the Outlook Connector.

    Zimbra doesn't release hotfix patches for the product, that bugfix will be incorporated into a full upgrade. You could always add a vote and your comments to the bug report.

    According to my explanation I didn't mention October 2007. All I said was Zimbra don't make hotfix patches and the bug will be incorporated into the full package.

    The bug entry mentions the next major release of Zimbra for the targeted fix. If you look in the announcements forum you'll get an idea of when the fix may be available.
    Regards
