Version 2.4.2

New Features

  • Zimbra Collaboration Suite 8.7.1 is now supported.

Version 2.4.1

New Features

  • Official support for Dell-EMC's ECS storage (S3 compatible)


  • Uninstalling Zimbra Suite Plus now undeploys the Client Zimlet as well.

Backup Plus

  • Fixed a bug that could cause an External Restore to fail with a "no such domain" error.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause the "getItem" CLI command to fail when using a target different from the current Backup Path.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause tags not to be properly restored when importing a Zimbra 7.x dataset into Zimbra 8.x.
  • Logging has been improved to reduce backup messages on the mailbox.log file when deleting a mailbox.
  • Operation queue improvement: if a Restore on New Account is running, subsequent operations of the same type with the same source won't be queued anymore.

Mobile Plus

  • Added several server-side workarounds for calendar issues affecting the stock client in iOS 10.x.
  • Added a server-side workaround to solve some clients' issues with appointment forwarding.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause a timezone error when creating appointments from an EAS client.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause emails sent through Zimbra Mobile+ to have a broken message preview in the Zimbra Web Client.

HSM Plus

  • Fixed a logic loophole that caused HSM Plus to override Zimbra's default storage classes even when the module was unlicensed/disabled. This caused issues with the "zmhsm", "zmblobchk" and "zmmboxmove" commands, now those commands work properly if HSM+ is unlicensed or disabled, while if the module is licensed and enabled you can use the HSM+ equivalents, "zxsuite hsm doMoveBlobs" and "zxsuite hsm doCheckBlobs".
  • Fixed a bug that caused some items not to be properly deleted from an S3 bucket when a mailbox was deleted.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause the Volume Deduplication operation not to detect and delete all duplicate files.
  • Several UI fixes and input santitization.
  • The behaviour of all HSM+ CLI commands has been standardized and now volume names can be used everywhere instead of volumeIDs.
  • All HSM+ operations now properly support dumpster folders.
  • The "Compression Threshold" value can now be set to "0".
  • The S3 caching engine has been optimized to remove a delay that was briefly affecting performances right after lowering the cache value.

Admin Plus

  • Fixed a bug that could cause an error when setting a quota value to "Unlimited" in Delegated Admins and Domain Limits.
  • Delegated admins can now see Alias Domain information for the domains they manage.

Version 2.4.0

Zimbra Suite Plus


  • Nailgun has been removed, now the Zimbra Suite Plus CLI uses a custom built engine which is way faster and more responsive.
    • The "--offline" option is being refactored, thus it has been removed and will be added back when the refactoring is completed.
  • Several wizards have been expanded and improved by adding an additional step at the beginning that fully explains the operation's functioning and options.
  • Licensing Notice: any license created on or after September 8th 2016 is only compatible with Zimbra Suite Plus 2.4.0 and higher.

Zimbra Backup Plus

  • Noticeable performance improvements in the RealTime Scanner and External Backup features.
  • Concurrency has been improved, allowing more backup operations to run together.
  • Fixed a bug that caused a licensing error to appear when trying to add a new account on a limited domain when the limit has been reached, now the appropriate error is shown.

Zimbra Mobile Plus

  • Free/busy support extended to any mobile client that supports this feature (ResolveRecipient Exchange ActiveSync command).
  • Expanded the workaround for the incorrect date displayed by emails sent from Yahoo to include more cases.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause synchronization issues if one or more address books under the "Email Contacts" folders exist.

Zimbra HSM Plus

  • S3 support: now Secondary volumes can be hosted on Amazon S3 buckets.
  • Attachment indexing.
  • Noticeable performance improvements in any operation that moves BLOBs (HSM and Volume to Volume move)
  • Changed the write error threshold to a percentage value (5%) instead of a fixed value.

Zimbra Admin Plus

  • The Zimbra Admin Plus module can now be used on Zimbra Network Edition 8.6 and higher instead of Zimbra's own ACL management system.
  • New distributed configuration backend to heavily reduce the response time of the module.

Version 2.2.5

Zimbra Suite Plus


  • This is the first stable Zimbra Suite Plus release compatible with Zimbra Collaboration 8.7.0. Yaaaaay!
  • Fixed a bug that could cause "wrong target" error to appear several times in the log when a node when a node isn't reachable for more than a minute.
  • Improved proxying recovery when a mailboxd server goes down in a 5-10+ mailboxd environment, now Zimbra Suite Plus will take less time to detect the server when it comes back up.

Zimbra Backup Plus

  • Fixed a UI bug that caused the wrong date to be displayed in "Restore on New Account" and "Undelete" wizards when the "Use least date available" option was selected.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause tags with numeric names not to be properly imported when migrating from Zimbra 7.x to Zimbra 8.x

Zimbra Mobile Plus

  • Fixed a harmless bug that could cause "ping" command responses to have duplicate http headers.
  • Added a workaround for an Outlook 2013/2016 issue that could cause calendar items to "flicker" (vanish and re-appear randomly) in the main Calendar window.
  • Added a workaround for an iOS issue that could cause sent emails to include an empty "Text/Plain" section before the actual content.
  • Added a workaround to make sure that emails with bad encoding are synchronized and displayed in Android and WP10.
  • Added a workaround to avoid an issue with dates reported on emails sent by Yahoo addresses and synchronized with Outlook 2013/2016.
  • Added a workaround to make sure that emails containing only an attachment (no other mime sections) are synchronized and displayed properly in Android.
  • Added a workaround to an incorrect behaviour of Microsoft Outlook which sends emails encoded with the gb2312 charset containing characters from the gb18030, which are now properly displayed.
  • Added a workaround to avoid the creation of "no duration" appointments (same Start and End date/time) to avoid issues in the Zimbra WebClient and in some EAS implementations.

Zimbra HSM Plus

  • Added a default value of 4096 bytes to the "Compression Threshold" valule in "New Volume" GUI.

Zimbra Admin Plus

  • Hooray, no fixes here!

Zimbra Suite Migration Tool

  • This is the first stable Zimbra Suite Migration Tool release compatible with Zimbra Collaboration 8.7.0.
