    Default web mail - multiple accounts

    hey everyone, i love using the web mail over outlook but have found a couple issues with it and i have some questions.

    1) is it possible to open another mailbox under the same domain? i use both the accounts reza@mydomain.com and support@mydomain.com
    2) is it possible to open other mailboxes on the same ZCS under a different domain?
    3) i'd like to see some way to attach address book contacts to an email in the form of a vCard.
    4) also it's incredibly annoying to have to forward emails individually. i'd like to be able to highlight 2 or more emails and forward them in one swoop.


    is any of this expected in future releases?

    1 & 2: Until shared mailfolders (comming in v5!) you'll probably have to use two browser sessions: open one in firefox and another in IE etc.

    3: "Add item", i.e. the ability to add a contact, email, calendar item etc." also close: "It'd be nice if we could right-click on a contact and do "Mail vCard" and have the app switch to mail compose with a .vcf attachment already on the message." Bug 6045 - allow attachment of contacts to messages Feel free to add your comments if you want.

    4: Bug 14003 - RFE: forward multiple messages from web client
    also close: Bug 4878 - select multiple emails; right click; send mail to all...

    lol-we both know there's more to it than that
    (good support doesn't come cheap and the extra features and packages are superb)

    While every company has feature request lists - the nice thing about the process here is that you get to track the work being done; other companies just hide your RFE's in some unseen database, or "coming in version x" list. (though PMWeb does that for us here too)

    Think of all the material they've given away! Of the overall code about 90% written by Zimbra and released in the OS edition, 5% written by non-employees, and 5% retained functionality for various levels of paying customers =95% of the product given away for anyone to modify. Then look at exchange, groupwise: nada zilch (and they cost even more)
    People have designed whole businesses using the OS edition, and zimbra might never see a cent for their work-now that's pretty damn generous.

    And it's a conscious effort (plus a good business model obviously-especially in the area of OS to NE converts) but it makes you wonder why more don't do it. Think of microsoft, they gripe about pirated copies of windows, yet at the same time hand it out free on college campuses (to get students hooked for later I might add) but talk about a glaring catch 22.

    all very good points, i was just kidding though.

    on another note i also noticed that when i search for godaddy in my webmail it will only bring up a couple emails, if i search for godaddy.com it brings up all the emails that i've received from godaddy. Is this a problem in the searching mechanism, shouldn't me typing in godaddy bring up all the emails from *@godaddy.com ? Maybe they need another RFE for this?

    How about searching for godaddy* - or read the excellent tutorial on searching that mmorse posted a short while back.

    I've found that an easier way to login to two (or more) accounts at once is to a DNS alias to your server and login into each account with a different domain name (we use mail.domain.tld and zimbra.domain.tld), then you can open both accounts in Firefox and not deal with IE. If you don't want to (or can't) add an alias to your domain, you could just use the server's IP.

    I've encountered some realllly weird issues with having multiple accounts logged in under IE/Firefox.

    Say I'm logged into user1@domain1.tld and user2@domain2.tld. Sometimes I'll go to open an attachment under the user1 account and it pulls up an attachment from the user2 account.
