Zimbra Desktop – A next generation cloud app by Yahoo!

Yahoo! Zimbra Desktop…

Zimbra Desktop

When I first came across this cloud app by Yahoo! I nearly passed over it. This application is an open source email (PIM) client, that is relatively young (Version 1.0), built using Mozilla’s Prism. Prism is an application that lets users split web applications out of their browser and run them directly from the desktop. In summary, Zimbra Desktop uses Prism as the container to give you that desktop application feel.

Now, I hope I haven’t lost you with all of this mumbo jumbo. Please stick with me, due I think that Yahoo! may be onto something with this cloud based application.

Zimbra Desktop is a full featured PIM (personal information manager) very similar to Microsoft Outlook that is next generation. This  application, in summary, features  full email, contact, calendar, document management and offline access features for free! The outstanding feature is the ability to pull down (sync) your email, calendars, etc.. with your POP3, IMAP and other popular webmail services.

My take on Zimbra Desktop is that I will be testing and following its’ development. The GUI (graphical user interface) is very nicely done and is a good bet it will have good following.

Yahoo! Zimbra Desktop is free for anyone to download and use. It works on Windows, Apple and Linux computers.

If you have questions or want help please start with their End User Guide or visit the Desktop Support page.
