About this book

Zimbra is open-source server and client software for messaging and collaboration: email, group calendaring, contacts, and web document management and authoring. The Zimbra server is available for Linux, Mac OS X, appliances, and virtualization platforms. The Zimbra Web 2.0 Ajax client runs on Firefox, Safari, and IE, and features easy integration/mash-ups of web portals, business applications, and VoIP using web services.

This book shows readers how to install and configure Zimbra for use with the web client, Outlook, and mobile devices. Readers will learn about Zimbra Collaboration Suite architecture and get an overview of its Administration. The book covers setting up users, using Zimbra as your main email server, and security, spam, and virus issues. It wraps up by looking at some Zimlets – Zimbra mashups – as well as backing up and managing performance.
