    Yes, I always use the 'compose in new window'. The memory usage goes up (about 1-2MB) when I compose the new mail and reduces slightly when it's sent. When I close any Zimbra web UI instance the memory doesn't go down but then it doesn't increase when I open it again - I would expect that but I'm not a coder or Java person so that may not be the expected behaviour.

    That is interesting... with FF2, I am finding that each new email composed consumes 3 or more MB on both our Macs and PCs and that only a small fraction is released upon completion of the email and close of its window.

    I am finding the same symptoms on our PCs with IE6 and IE7, except that the memory consumed with each new email is several times greater than with FF2 and that only a negligible amount is released upon close of the "compose email window".

    If anyone else can confirm this, I would be happy to file a bugzilla report. If it's only me, I guess I will keep plugging away trying to understand it.

    On an unrelated note... Is there a way to identify the revision level of the server you are connected to from within the web client? (I do not have access to the server but would love to be able to easily confirm when upgrades have been installed.)

    Thanks again

    Unfortunately I can't confirm the IE6 or 7 usage as my window machines are unavailable at the moment and I don't have access to a MAC. I would expect that IE use more memory than FF. Just out of interest are you using the most recent version of Java (1.5.0 update 12 on my system)? If this is a problem with a clean install of FF, I wouldn't wait for confirmation before filing a bugzilla report.

    You can check the installed version of Zimbra via the admin UI in the help section.

    I definitely have a clean FF2 install.

    As for my Java version...that was a good question that I had not considered. As I poke around on the various computers here, there seems to be a wide variety of Java versions in use. I will have to take care of that.

    My laptop and desktop Windows XP machines were both at 1.5.0 update 10. I uninstalled and downloaded and installed the latest from java.com, and they now show version 6 update 2.

    Unfortunately, this did not have an impact on the memory consumption problem.
