To teach Zimbra end-users how to create a reminder from an email message.


You can create a reminder from an email in Zimbra. This is actually a bit of a workaround, but it is very helpful.

Right-click the email from which you want to create a reminder, and select Create Task.


In the Task tab, set the date and time for your reminder. In this example, at 4:00pm on September 22, a reminder window will pop up in my browser window.


Using Zimbra Preferences > Notifications, you can also configure email and/or SMS reminders.
