Zimbra

 Ajax based web collaboration is at the heart of ZCS. The powerful web client integrates email, contacts, shared calendar, VoIP, and online document authoring into a rich browser-based interface. Also, our unique open source Zimlet technology makes it easy for you to include custom ‘mash-ups’ in the ZCS web client. ZCS also includes an elegant Ajax based Admin Interface plus full scripting tools to manage the ZCS server. Full support is provided for standards-based APIs (IMAP / POP / iCal / CalDAV) as well as MAPI and iSync, which enable seamless compatibility with other clients like Microsoft Outlook, Apple desktop suite, and Mozilla Thunderbird. Zimbra also offers Zimbra Mobile, which provides over-the-air “push” synchronization to smartphones as well as a Connector for BlackBerry Enterprise Server. The Zimbra solution also has a complete high security package including built-in anti-spam and anti-virus scanning. Now Zimbra also features Archiving and Discovery, an optional component to save and search email for various compliance issues.
