    Default "Active-Sync" and Android?

    We currently have a ton of iPhone users using Zimbra and ActiveSync to get their email, calendars and contacts seamlessly synced between our Zimbra servers and their iPhones.

    Now we are seeing users wanting to move away from iPhones and onto various Android devices. Mostly the Samsung Galaxy and Nexus and perhaps HTC. Looking on the Zimbra website, it is stated that:

    "Zimbra Mobile for Smartphones
    Native integration with Mail, Contacts, Calendar apps and over-the-air data sync on Android OS and Windows Mobile OS smartphones such as the Droid."

    My question is, do all Android devices support full syncing of email, calendar and contacts back to Zimbra servers? Our users really need all 3 to work just like they would on the iPhones as far as integration goes. On the iPhone we use the Exchange option when setting up the Mail/Cal/Contacts accounts and it all works great. Are Android devices the same?

    That would depend on the implementation of Activesync on the Android phone.

    If you want a good experience against a Zimbra server then I'd suggest using Touchdown from Nitrodesk. I've been using Touchdown for several years without problems.

    Great info! Thank you very much. Touchdown looks really good and we will test this out as well.
