Zimbra Email & Collaboration

Zimbra is great for an email system for a medium or large organization with appropriate IT staffing. The system is easy to use for end-users, and has a fantastic web interface. Unfortunately, it is overly complex, when considering staffing requirements and price, when compared with Office 365 or Google Apps for smaller organizations. For other education customers, it is hard to compete with Microsoft and Google providing their services for "Free" now though

EDUARDO SANDOVAL | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

FortiMail

  • I would like to see a recommended config come base on the box.
  • I would like to see a secure score type area.
Cody McNeill | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zimbra Email & Collaboration

  • The password change is not activated when you access by IMAP, Pop3 or Exchange sync. You have to know that the password change is required and you must go to the website to do so.
  • The management of mail rules should have more checking options.
  • There should be more applications compatible with Zimbra, the ones that appear in the Zimlets.

Any time I've had to use the support, it has been great! They always will recommend certain options, as well as explain what they do and why they are there. The support always gets back to me the same day, and are always pleasant to deal with. I never hesitate to call.

Overall, we were satisfied with the implementation. We perhaps should have spent more time consulting with Zimbra or others regarding best practices but as we got to know the system better we were able to make changes relatively easily after the fact.

Alternatives Considered

FortiMail

FortiMail works much better than the previous product we used, McAfee Email Gateway.
Tom Parker | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zimbra Email & Collaboration

We selected Zimbra because it has a lower cost in the market, offers more development features for its open source, has a very easy to use interface and adjusts to the needs of the company.

Return on Investment

FortiMail

  • Less virus detected by computer, stopped before.
  • Way less fishing attempts.
  • Doesn't need too much resources.
Tommy Boucher | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zimbra Email & Collaboration

  • Since all of our ROI studies and strategies are performed at the corporate level, I'm really not sure what positive or negative impacts Zimbra has had on our overall business objectives. I can say that at least one positive impact it has on my business objectives, in the medical record department, is the ability to be as paperless as possible.
