Zimbra Mobile Overview

Zimbra Mobile is the Zimbra synchronization program that provides 'over-the-air' mobile data access (email, contacts, calendar) to devices using the native software / UI installed on the device. It works with Symbian S60/S80, Windows® Mobile (WM5), and Palm smartphones.

Devices listed below can be configured to work with Zimbra Mobile out of the box. Many more devices work with Zimbra Mobile natively but a sync plug-in is not bundled with the device (plug-in is avialable via a 3rd party - DataVis).

You enable Zimbra Mobile in the ZCS COS or for individual Accounts. Users configure the device’s software for Zimbra Mobile similarly to how they configure the device to sync against Microsoft® Exchange.

The following may need to be configured:

  • Server address. Type the fully qualified hostname of the user’s Zimbra Collaboration Suite mailbox server.
  • User name. Type the user’s name as configured in their Zimbra account. The domain is configured separately.
  • Domain Type the user’s Zimbra mailbox domain name.

Afterwards the users can sync their Zimbra mailbox to their mobile device. They can send email, create appointments, and add contacts.

IMPORTANT: Some users may experience configuration difficulty if using SSL. WM5 includes a limited number of root certificates and it may be necessary to install your server’s signing CA’s certificate on the device in order to use SSL
