For the last year, i was searching an testing different messaging/communications servers, looking for the perfect one. And i think i found it. Zimbra is still young, but i know that it has potential, and it is here to stay. I just have a few questions (im new here, so forgive me if i ask stupid questions)
But why is there no Todo List, and Notes section like in Outlook. I think that is a great feature to have, and to share with coworkers.
Also, do you plan on having file storage. I think that would be excellent, to store a bunch of differnt files, and share them with co-workers.
Im really anxious to see when Zimbra implements a IM server, and the Astreik Zimlet is ready.
And another idea i have is have a blog for each user, that is ideal in this new world of enterprise comminications.
Also, why not have a built in Feed reader. To be constantly updated on important information.
I think Astreik should be deeply intergrated into zimbra.
I really love that zimbra is open, and is trying to be agnostic to the client/server platform and applications. And i agree with the having zimlets extend the app, but i was wondering, where can i find zimlets. I was hoping for a "zimlet center". Think about it, like Salesforce.com has the AppExchange, which is basically like a web OS, that other companies can make apps for. I think that their should be a "iTunes Music Store" of Zimlets. So people can add the funcionality that they need.
I really hope you have these ideas on your mind for the future, because i really think that it will propel Zimbra to new heights, and really give Microsoft and others a run for their money, by being
Zimbra can compare to Microsofts following products
Live Communications Server
They can also beat Microsoft to shipping a Enterprise class Voip server solutions.
(Also Blackberry support, pleez!)
