    Hello,

    I am using the Zimbra Community Edition and want to sync my zimbra calendar with my android phone. Is there any free app that is using caldav? Until now i haven't found any.
    Can i use VMware Zimbra for Android just for synchronising my zimbra calendar with my andoid calendar? Or can i only use it as hole program, so it is also downloading my mails etc.?

    Thanks for your answers.

    I'm using CalDav sync it's not free but it's just a couple of bucks. Working really whell and even syncs shared calendars. I use Business Calendar Free as calendar and this works really good.

    Just remember to set option in settings->applications to allow installation of program from unknown (i.e. other than android market) sources, and then to swith it off, so you keep you phone relatively safe.

    Default setting android IMAP

And it's a live, 2-way sync, so any changes on the phone are reflected in the server. And vice-versa.
    i'm using android samsung galaxy ace. and ZIMBRA server is= open source not Network Edition. so i'm setting in my Handphone Android with IMAP.
    Incoming server IMAP = mail.tatalogam.com, PORT= 143, not SLL===> success
    Outgoing Server SMTP = mail.tatalogam.com, PORT= 80, not SSL.===> success but not login username and password,

    EMAIL INBOX success, but for SENT email is ERROR..why?

    thanks

    SMTP is port 25. However, you should be using port 587 with TLS and username/password. Or if that's not available, port 465 with SSL and username/password may work.

    (SMTP is only allowed if you're on a "trusted network" as defined in Zimbra OR if the email is being sent to an account in Zimbra.)

    actually about andoroid

    ITS WRONG that it uses only one database - technically yes but it splits it in different mailboxes

    so having multiple accounts in one phone works well

    second you should not use pop3 on android - use imap - or exchange active sync

    für exchange you need networkeditions or liverpoolfans zimbrabackend with zpush - both works well and stable (zpush is real solid too)


    however - exchange can have some falws on adroid -
    everything bevore 2.3.4 on phones and 3.1 on tablets can have some issues
    be aware 3.1 isnt a higher android than 2.3.5 - branch 3x is made for tables - these two branches will merge with android 4x)

    on iphone the excahnge thing has also some flaws.. so

    as an alternative you can use
    imap for mail
    caldav for caledar (latest in markets works pretty fine)
    carddav for adressbook

    second solution is better ni functionality but the exchange sync solution works better as push
    i personally use exchange but i think hte caldav/carddav/imap is the future
    (it supprts multiple caledars instead of one merged for example)


    however in any cases use https for exchange /caldav/carddav
    and use imaps and smtps for imap

    android accepts self signes certificates too
    do not use unencrypted mail
