    Wink Don't forget to update your profile with version info

    Hi Folks-
    Just a friendly reminder that it helps us out a TON if you have your Zimbra version in your forum profile.

    That way, we can know right away if it's a bug/known issue.

    You can find this on your profile user CP.

    best,
    john

    Plus, version sometimes makes a difference on what commands we give, available options that you can take based on Open Source vs Network Edition, or better yet we may have already implemented a feature your requesting in a newer release. (It also saves time having to ask in the future.)

    How to check your version?

    Note: Not all these methods are possible in the desktop client, but that also has multiple 'about' links.

    Several quick methods for server editions:

    A) Preferred, via the command line:
    Code:
    su - zimbra
    zmcontrol -v
    B) In the main search bar of the advanced (AJAX) web-client enter:
    Code:
    $set:get version
    C) Visit server.domain.com/downloads/index.html in your browser.

    D)
    Code:
    more /opt/zimbra/.install_history
    E)
    Code:
    telnet server.domain.com 143
    A001 ID NIL
    OR
    Code:
    openssl s_client -connect server.domain.com:993
    (More or less info available depending on true/false setting of zimbra[Protocol]ExposeVersionOnBanner.)

    F) Send yourself an email from the web-client, 'show original' and check the X-Mailer: header.

    G) Admin console help, about ZCS version.

    H) server.domain.com/js/zimbraMail/share/model/ZmSettings.js

    Then simply go to http://www.zimbra.com/forums/profile.php?do=editprofile about halfway down the page 'additional information' > Zimbra Version/OS blank.

    (Be sure to enter the whole string in the provided box, as it contains important build data. Or add it to your signature.)

    At least in ZCS 7, once you do this, you need to hover over the link for a particular download and examine the URL to see the version of the tool or connector. From that you can tell the approximate ZCS version, but it might not be exact. For example, if your admin has updated the ZCO with a prerelease version, the downloads might have the 7.2.1 ZCO connector even though your server is 7.2.
