Overall Satisfaction with Zimbra

We use Zimbra as our mail platform, contact management and to share some files within our group of companies. Zimbra supports one of the most important applications, which is our email system. It manages our companies on the same platform. The global and personalized management of contacts has facilitated the management of our users, regardless of the location they are in. Additionally, it gives us different ways of connecting to the mail and to the information, which allows more versatile management options, since our platform is heterogeneous.
  • The management of incremental mail backup. It is very simple, and the administrators of my company recover information quickly.
  • The management of the distribution lists is structured. This allows easy distribution of mass information.
  • The web application is very complete and intuitive.
  • 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.
  • We have a stable mail service. We do not have any issues.
  • We have better control of the licenses that we activate. This allows us to save on costs.
  • We can create custom domains for the different businesses that we manage, quickly. This helps us to have high availability and a better commercial image.
Zimbra is a significantly cheaper option than one of the Microsoft solutions, such as Exchange. It is able to run in a free environment, as it is in the case of Linux. It offers the advantages of a powerful mail manager, such as indexed searches and the integration of contacts and notes, all in one platform. It is constantly updated and the operation of its connection in mobile equipment is remarkable and very efficient. Additionally, it is able to easily integrate with Outlook solutions with its connector, which brings all the benefits of Zimbra to the user under the interface known as "mail manager." So far, I have been using Zimbra for several years and I have not missed my previous work platforms.
It is ideal for companies that wish to have their own control of their mail service and the management of their messages and contacts because it allows a complete administration of these systems. When it comes to a group of companies who want to manage different domains, the ideal is to have your own mail platform. ZImbra is also suited when you have to save costs. Although you pay for licenses, you have the possibility to pay as you go and therefore do not have to invest in this service for a long time. It is also suited for when companies, such as Venezuelan ones that have limitations to make payments or investments in USD or EUR, have a much harder time using expensive cloud systems.
