I have been evaluating and testing Zimbra, specifically the web-mail client, over the past few days. For the most part I have been very impressed with the whole package so far. While using the web-mail client I have come across a few minor issues. Searching the forums and bugzilla I have found most of my issues already brought up, and on the "to do" list. However, there are a couple of things that I've run into that I haven't been able to find any mention of anywhere, and I'm just wondering if I'm doing something wrong and/or they are known issues.
1) I have Mail --> View set to By Message, with Reading Pane enabled. I prefer to have my message list sorted with the oldest message at the top of the list and the newest at the bottom; the default is the opposite. I can click on the Received column to resort it the way I like. However, when I close out of the client and then log back in it reverts back to the default. Most of the other email clients that I've used save the user's sorting preferences.
2) Related to number one. After I resort my messages they stay that way for the duration of my session if I just let normal email polling check for new mail. However, if I click on the "Get Mail" icon in the toolbar it immediately resorts my messages back to the default descending order. What's strange is that the column heading still indicates that it is in ascending order, and I have to click on the column twice in order to get it back to the way I want it.
3) This one I think I've done something to cause the behavior, although I'm not sure what. Within the Reading Pane, in the message header area in the From and To fields I see either a person's name, followed by an email address surrounded by <>, just a name, or just an email address. However for my own "address" all I see is my login, without the domain appended. I checked another test user that I set up and I see the full name, followed by the email address, so I'm thinking that I changed something but I can't figure out what it is.
