    Unhappy Zimbra or something else?

    Hi,

    i am planning to install Zimbra. Is it possible to install the open source Version on debian etch. Then use Zindus to sync Thuderbird Contacts and use FinchSync to sync the contacts to a Mobile device? Or is there a way to sync my Windows Mobile Phone directly with Zimbra, maybe via WLAN? I don't need the E-Mails on my Phone, but the Contacts.

    Or is there an easier solution for this scenario? I just want to have ONE Calendar, ONE copy of my E-Mails (downloaded from a pop3 account) with web access. ... Installed on my Homeserver. Is eGroupWare the better choice, oder Kolap?

    Sorry for all these questions and my bad english, but maybe you guys can help me

    We've run the open source version of Zimbra just fine on Etch in the past, before we moved to the Network Edition.

    Your Windows Mobile phone can sync contacts "over the air" with Zimbra using ActiveSync, and it works very well, but support for that is only included in the Network Edition, not the open source version.

    Is there a reason you really need this to be on a home server? You can get a hosted Zimbra Network Edition account with 01.com for just $50 a year, even with a custom domain, and that would give you the web interface, over the air calendar and contact sync, and POP3 access you're looking for.

    Zimbra + Funambol is the solution, right?
