Zimbra Collaboration Review

Easy to manage. The calendar is a useful organizational tool.

What is most valuable?

Most valuable to us is the fact that it's open source, so it's possible to do a lot of customization. Zimbrais easy to manage.

How has it helped my organization?

The calendar is a quite useful organizational tool. We also created a lot of accounts for special needs, since we can have as many as we want.

What needs improvement?

There are some bugs we found that could be fixed. Also, there was a chat tool which was really useful, but was discontinued.

For how long have I used the solution?

We’ve used Zimbra for 4 years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We did not encounter any issues with stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Regarding scalability, from a user point-of-view, gmail is more convenient with all the other tools, such as Google Docs, Google Drive, etc.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We did not use any other solutions.

How was the initial setup?

To complete the initial setup, you need to adjust the spam filter, setup DKIM, etc. Also, it’s Linux-based, so you need to be familiar with that environment.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The free version is good enough for a small to medium size company.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated Gmail before going with Zimbra.

What other advice do I have?

If you don’t have a technical person to manage the project, you may want to use a different solution.

Which version of this solution are you currently using?
