Today Zimbra, RSAWEB’s email service of choice, released version 3 of its desktop email client. Designed to compete with Outlook, Thunderbird and Mac Mail the software allows users to sync their desktop with their Zimbra mailbox for offline access. The product promises the robust features of Outlook, which are lacking in Outlook Express and Thunderbird. Users can access Zimbra accounts, or any Pop/IMAP supported email boxes. Zimbra Desktop also includes a calendar, contact list and other useful features.
Zimbra also received the backing of Michael Arrington from the well known tech blog Techcrunch, here is what he had to say:
I like the ability to tag items, collapse conversations, and perform web and local searches via the search bar in the top right corner of the app. If I wasn’t all Mac across the board to keep things synced properly, I’d use Zimbra permanently.
