    Default Forwarding Contacts (vcards) in Zimbra web client

    Hi all,

    Another item has come up, and a number of people need to be able to forward contacts, like vcards.

    The Zimbra help says this is possible, but it doesn't appear to be so:

    %%%%%%%%%%%%

    Forwarding contact information

    You can forward contact in your address book as electronic business cards called vCards. A vCard is an electronic equivalent of a business card.

    *
    Select the contact name and right-click. Click Forward Contact.
    *
    Select multiple contact names in an address book and on the address book toolbar click Forward.
    *
    Within an email message, right-click the name in the From field and select Forward Contact.

    A compose pane opens with the contact .vcf file attached. Complete the message and send. The recipient can download the .vcf directly to their contact list.

    %%%%%%%%%%%%

    The problem is that there is no "Forward Contact" option in the contact.

    To be fair, this system HAS been upgraded from v6.0.10 to v7.1.4. Is it possible that there is something that needs to be enabled on the server side, either through the Admin console or the CLI?

    I've searched through the different places it might be in the admin console and haven't found anything. Briefcase IS disabled, is this feature a part of the briefcase option?

    %%%%%%%%%%%%

    I did set up a Zimbra test server for our users to "play with" the interface before we did the actual upgrade, and the "Forward Contact" option WAS available. This test server was a fresh install of Zimbra 7.1.4, rather than an upgrade, leading me to believe that this issue is due to the upgrade, or something else I didn't configure correctly.

    Thanks in advance,

    Mark

    Default Solved!

    It looks like this feature was implemented in Zimbra 7 as a Zimlet, and while it's enabled by default in a fresh install, it was not enabled during the upgrade from Zimbra 6.

    Forwarding of contacts through vcf file attachments works like a charm (you can even highlight a bunch of contacts, and send them all with a single message).

    Thanks again!

    What's the name of the zimlet? I'm trying to deploy it to v7.

    We've since upgraded from 7.14 to 7.20, but it should be the same: /opt/zimbra/zimlets/com_zimbra_attachcontacts.zip
