    Default Zimbra as "MAPI client"?

    Hello,
    we want to migrate a customer that uses Outlook 2000 for long years to Zimbra Open Source Edition.
    The Zimbra web-interface is great for replacing the Outlook installations on every computer, but there is one big problem: some applications need a local installed mail client that speaks MAPI!

    Is there a way or a program that can send all the MAPI requests from these applications to the Zimbra web client?
    We don't want to install a local mail app like Outlook or Thunderbird again that talks to Zimbra, we only want to use the web-interface of Zimbra.
    A little tool that is running in the background of every Windows 7 client and redirect MAPI requests to Zimbras web-interface or something like that would be great!

    Why not use Zimbra Desktop?

    I have installed Zimbra Desktop 7.1.2 yesterday on Windows 7,
    but it don't seems to act as a local mail app and it don't catches MAPI requests.
    When i click on a mail to link in Firefox it doesn't open Zimbra Desktop.

    Of course it doesn't, it's not a MAPI client.

    Then set the default application for opening 'mail-to' links.

    And that's the reason why Zimbra Desktop is not what i'm looking for.

    Maybe that works, but the main problem is still there! No MAPI client!

    Here is the solution:

    Habitech

    The new Zimbra Notifier 5.x has now MAPI-Support!

    Special thanks to Martin for this great piece of software!
