The title says it all, December is a quiet time of year for us and so we planned and executed a smooth transiation to Zimbra from Outlook 2000.Â It went very well, and whilst there are changes for the users and some learning, there are benefits as well as drawbacks in the move.
As we are SILL on v4.5 (come on Zimbra team, we want 5.0!) our users are currenly missing the following features:
- the ability to access a communal mailbox (our “sales” account) without using 2 different browsers – due to be fixed in v5.0
- the ability to use html signatures – Â due to be fixed in v5.0
- attaching multiple attachments is slower using zimbra rather than outlook
- the signature field is only 1024 characters, and our disclaimer is longer than that (thank UK law for this), and on first try the zimbra disclaimer add on recently promoted on their blog didnt work for us
Apart from these issues, its all gone perfectly.Â Again, its a good feeling.
We have 3 migrations left to go.Â Our MIS (massive project) due from 2 January, then the phone system using trixbox, and finally all the OSs fromÂ W2K to ubuntu (Q1 2008)
