    Default Syncing Desktop to Andriod

    Is there an easy way to sync my phone to Desktop? I have a Thunderbolt phone.
    Thank you

    Zimbra Desktop is a mail client, it connects to a mail server to synchronise your email to your PC. Your Android phone is a mail client, it connects to a mail server to synchronise your email to the phone. Do you see where I'm going with this? If they both connect to the same mail server, you'll have your email on both of the devices.

    Hi Bill,
    Thanks so much for the quick response. I admit that i am not at all bright on these matters. Essentially what i am attempting to do with Zimbra is replace my outlook.

    That said, I am thinking sync'ing with phone from the perspective of tasks, contacts, calendar, etc.

    Does that change your advice to me?

    I will check out the wiki doucment on transferring my exisiting outlook information to Zimbra.

    Thanks much Bill....your time is much appreciated.

    Not really. The usual place you sync your mail client (whether it's a phone or Outlook or Zimbra Desktop) with is a mail server. Your mail (tasks and contacts) are located on that server, whichever (or all) client you use will synchronise with that. Whether you can sync all of those items would depend on your mail client (in the phone) and whether the mail server supports that function.

    There's actually a couple of threads in the ZD forums not the wiki.

    Thanks again Bill.
    Let me ask you one more question. What, in your opinion, is the single best thing to do to get up to speed on Zimbra desktop the fastest? A video, a doucment, etc?

    Thanks much.

    The Zimbra Desktop page has a Overview, Features and End-user Guide sections - I'd suggest that as a good starting point then investigate the interface of ZD.
