Windows Mobile smartphones natively sync email, contacts and calendars to Zimbra accounts. The prerequisites for installing Zimbra Mobile are:

  1. The Zimbra email system used by your organization or service provider is a paid Network Edition license (ask your administrator if you are not sure)
  2. Your administrator has enabled mobility on your account

Assuming these requirements are met, you configure Zimbra just like you would a Microsoft Exchange account on the device (this is the name used for any ActiveSync-based service. For more information about ActiveSync, go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ActiveSync). In order to complete this set up you will need to know the following:

  • Your email address
  • Your email password
  • Your organization's domain you normally type in the web browser (for example, email.yourcompany.com).

Does your organization require SSL access or not (for example, do you use http:// or https:// to view Zimbra webmail) Note: Some users may experience configuration difficulty if using SSL with Windows Mobile 5. Windows Mobile 5 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.
