    Default To-Do List and Shared Email Folders

    Hi,

    I am evaluating Zimbra for our company to get rid of Exchange. At the first glance I like Zimbra very much. But I am missing two things:
    1. To-Do List
    2. Shared Email Folders

    Did I overlook something? If not, are those two things on the roadmap and is there some ETA? I could not find infos about that on the Zimbra Site.

    Bug report doesn't say this but, how far away approximately is the IMAP Folders feature? (Bug 9396)

    Does anyone have any info on this?

    Cheers

    Russ

    Sorry Bobby!

    What do you mean about the Outlook connector having the beta of this feature?

    Just want to have a quick look at it!

    Thanks

    If you have the latest Outlook Connector and 4.0.2 you can mount/view another person's mail. In 4.0.3 (a week or so) we'll make this a little easier.

    Default Shared Email Folders a Priority

    Hi

    For me, shared email folders are a high priority, and a gap between Outlook and Zimbra that needs to be closed.

    I've looked at the Bug 9396, and beleive that while the functionality described there would be useful in some cases, what the majority of people want to do is this.

    1. Create a folder in their account.
    2. Share that folder with other users in their domain (with view or manage rights).
    3. Users who accept the share will have the opportunity to name the folder, and it will appear in their folder list.
    4. When a grantee clicks on the folder they will see the list of emails in the folder, and be able to read them. If they have manage rights, they will also be able to delete an email and move email to and from the folder.
    5. If rights are given to a folder, then the same rights apply to any subfolders of that folder.

    Use Cases:

    Simple workflow. For example a Sales person might drop a sales confirmation email into a Sales folder, where customer service can pick it up.

    Shared Information Storage: Sales and Customer service could both access a shared hierarchy of folders, one for each customer which contain all saved correspondence with that customer.

    I'm wondering if bug/enhancement 9396 is appropriately covering off this kind of functionaility, and whether a new bug/enhancement should be created ? or is there already one, I couldn't find anything.

    Thanks - Adam.

    Hi Kevin,

    Where's the documentation on this feature? Sounds useful for some of our clients?

    Thanks,
    Keith

    Exclamation shared folders in imap

    The problem is the current IMAP implementation.

    E.g. my current Cyrus IMAP has following capabilities:

    ID QUOTA STARTTLS NAMESPACE AUTH=DIGEST-MD5 MULTIAPPEND IDLE UNSELECT SORT NO_ATOMIC_RENAME UIDPLUS THREAD=REFERENCES IMAP4 IMAP4REV1 X-NETSCAPE AUTH=CRAM-MD5 THREAD=ORDEREDSUBJECT ACL LITERAL+

    and zimbra imap has only these capabilities:

    ID QUOTA NAMESPACE SASL-IR AUTH=PLAIN LOGIN-REFERRALS UNSELECT LITERAL+ BINARY UIDPLUS CATENATE CHILDREN IMAP4REV1

    IMHO the ACL Capability is necessary to allow other users to share folders.

    Question to the developers:
    Is it possible to compile the imapd with one or more other IMAP options -
    or is it possible to use another imap-server ? (apt-get install cyrus-imapd)

    Thomas.
