Changes with ZCO 7.2.x in regards to Sync behavior
With ZCO 7.2 , ZCO now respects the Outlook profile configuration about sync time. Please see :
"ZCO not automatically sync'ing - have to manually sync"
Bug 73440 – ZCO not automatically sync'ing - have to manually sync
Comment 5 from that bug states:
OL2010: Send/Receive ribbon -> Send/Receive Groups drop list -> Define Send/Receive Groups -> "Schedule an automatic send/Receive every"
OL2003+2007: On main toolbar Send/Receive drop list -> Send/Receive Settings-> Define Send/Receive Groups -> "Schedule an automatic send/Receive every"
A future change or option might also be available with the work behind this RFE:
"SNDRCV: ZCO sync should be governed by waitsets rather than polling"
Bug 61155 – SNDRCV: ZCO sync should be governed by waitsets rather than polling
What In the World Were You Thinking!?
I'm new to Zimbra, but this change seems insane!
The Send/Receive polling interval was primarily intended for accessing POP mailboxes across a slow connection. Zimbra aims to be the primary mail platform for small, medium, or whatever, sized-businesses. (E.g. the alternative of Exchange -- which, btw, has instantaneous sync!)
Why in the world would you make a change that under the default configuration of Outlook would be to NOT EVER synchronize automatically!
