Zimbra Mobile Installation and Setup for Windows Mobile
Work in Progress
Windows Mobile smartphones natively sync email, contacts and calendars to Zimbra accounts. The prerequisites for installing Zimbra Mobile are:
- 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)
- 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.
Installation and Setup
- On Start tap Programs.
- Select ActiveSync
- Click set up your device to sync with it. Select Add Server Source.
