    Default A little help/direction for a Zimbra noob, please...

    I've been reading around the forum for a couple hours this morning and find myself confused.

    I've used Outlook for almost 12 years, with 4 POP3 accounts.

    Recently, I started a new job. It is my boss, and 3 employees. He needs all our calendar and contacts to be shared/visible with each other, etc... That's easily handled with Microsoft Exchange, but 4 employees doesn't justify the cost of Exchange, even hosted, being a start-up and all.

    We do some other things with a company that offers a web version of Zimbra, that will allow for all the functionality I mention above. As a matter of fact, I've got it all set up, and just have to get the .PST files imported in.

    My question is, is there a way to sync my (and my boss') Blackberry to the web version of Zimbra? I've read a few threads that seem to indicate Outlook will have to be involved, etc... Can anyone give me a clear understanding of how this is done, high-level, and then I'll dig around here for the step-by-step instructions?

    Thanks, and look forward to working with you guys for a long time.

    Eric

    Sorry for posing the tough question... (smile) I am Googling and searching the forums like a madman, and simply not finding out if I can sync calendar and contacts with the web client of Zimbra.

    In that case, I'm not sure about other options but you might look at a product called Astrasync. It is not advertised for Zimbra afaict; however it might well work. People on a Communigate list seem to like it, and that's an activesync clone like Zimbra.

    Funambol is another word I'd do some searching on.
