Article Information

This article applies to the following ZCS versions.

ZCS 6.0 Article ZCS 6.0

Sites upgrading from 5.x to 6.x will want something they can show users. While such documents will have certain site-specific features, I believe the community will benefit from a shared core. I'm going to go screen-by-screen and point out what's new and improved. My site will be going from 5.0.19 to 6.0.4, so those are the versions I'll be comparing.. but if someone wants to contribute text noting pre-6.0.4 or post-6.0.4 differences, that's fine with me.

The focus is not "Here's why Zimbra 6 is a great thing" but "OK, we just upgraded the server. Here's how to take advantage of the new features."

Existing work


At first glance, the Zimbra 6 Mail tab looks the same as it did in 5.0. You should be able to work as you did before. But many new features are just beneath the surface.

To provide more vertical space for folders, the "New Folder" bar has been changed to a button to the right of the word "Folders." New-folder.png

If you click to open the "New" menu, you'll see keyboard shortcuts. For example, "nf" will create a new folder. Previously, these keyboard shortcuts were only listed on a little-noticed Preferences page.New-keystrokes.png

Under the "View" menu, there are two new options. "Reading Pane On The Right" sets up a three-pane view that works very well on wide screens. "Expand conversations from old to new" puts the oldest message first. Mail-view-menu.png
