To help customers and partners better meet changing user needs, Zimbra put some serious development time behind both the customer-facing user experience and the back-end architecture.

Some of the new features introduced are :

  • Touch client for tablets and smartphones

The secure, HTML5 mobile web application provides a device-specific user experience for Android and iOS devices. The Zimbra touch client can be tailored through open APIs and fully white labeled.

It delivers anytime, anywhere mailbox access, through a unique Zimbra experience, that keeps people connected to their data.

  • Offline Web client

Offline Web client support for Chrome and Firefox keeps Zimbra users connected, even when not taking advantage of native HTML5 data storage support. Users get the ability to work offline with access to one month’s worth of data. And, IT administrators benefit from an offline client that doesn’t increase the cost or management associated with a full desktop client.


  • Exchange Web Services

The latest release adds new Exchange Web Services (EWS) support, enabling all mail, contacts, tasks and calendar functionality in Outlook for Mac. Administrators can add Outlook for Mac to the list of supported clients for BYOD environments, and users get to choose whatever Mac desktop client they prefer.


  • Zimbra Social integration

Zimbra Collaboration 8.5 includes integrated support for Zimbra Social. Customers running both Zimbra products benefit from a shared user experience and single sign-on. Keeping employees connected to all of the collaboration touch points.
