Zimbra Desktop is the next generation leap forward for Web 2.0 applications- now you can have Zimbra's Ajax-based collaboration experience online and offline. That means when you are out of the office without a connection (say, in a plane, train, or automobile), you can keep working without missing a beat. Write email, add new appointments, edit documents and when you re-connect changes will be automatically synced to the Zimbra Server.

Zimbra Desktop benefits:

  • The better overall usability of Web 2.0 (conversation view, tags, Zimlets) comes to the desktop; plus the web and desktop experience are now the same
  • Switch from online to offline mode seamlessly and automatically; when online you are immune to hiccups and interruptions caused by server latency
  • Faster search, better rich mail rendering, and a self-organizing inbox more adept handling larger email volumes than traditional clients (no more 2GB mailbox limits!)
  • Significantly reduced administration overhead managing and maintaining local files; they are synced to the Zimbra Server where they can be safeguarded
  • Fundamentally a cross browser, cross platform solution (Windows, Apple, Linux)
  • It's open source; expensive investments in proprietary clients are no longer required
