    Zimbra and Web problems

    Hi I've spent the last two days trying to get a straight answer from link2ict and failed miserably all I want to know is my ftp address and login details for my website, And zimbra has completely cocked up our office machines only one of 4 machines connects the other 3 crash or refuse to connect via outlook, why did we have to change to this system? Can any one give me the correct format for the new ftp address??
    thanks

    I use www.schoolname.bham.sch.uk as the host name in Filezilla and it works ok. Note you can ftp from within the BGFL.

    We got an email from a Darren Laxton regarding our details, might be worth giving him a shout

    Bit of an odd request, but can I create an account that can receive emails but not send them?

    I could use outlook and not enter the SMTP details but ideally i'd like to use the web interface . . .

    Grrr stupid Personal Message Manager Digest emails, why do they send a different PMM account for every alias? The head has, $headsname and $the.head and something else and each one keeps sending her reminders, why can they all go to one account!

    PMM is really poo! From what I can tell the reason that PMM creates a new account for every alias is that it has no integration with Zimbra. It only knows about e-mail addresses so each different address creates a new account.

    You could use the delegation feature to delegate "the.head" to "headteacher" etc so there is only one account to manage. Unfortunately this is done by the end user. An administrator AFAIK cannot override user delegation setting so they can set it up on a mass scale.

    Until l found out about the crappy PMM I was going to go mad creating aliases for people but not now!

    PMM was another nice little surprise that Link2ICT gave us.

    New bug in the filtering, any image or document containing images that has any 4 letter word in the meta data is being mistakenly flagged as profanity. To get round this you have to zip the files before sending.

    Great!

    For those of you with iPhones it is possible to set up Calendar Sync using CalDAV protocol with Zimbra on BGfL

    See here for instructions (follow exactly!).

    Link2ICT had said they had disabled Mobile sync. Might now try IMAP syncing in my iPhone next!!

    P.S. Zimbra have a Mobile optimised web interface which works well and you can access Mail,Calendar, Tasks and IIRC contacts too.

    I hate this one, especially as there is no way to "release" an email. Instead I have to explain to the user what to do or mostly I end up zipping the attachment myself and then send it on - but it does cause some confusion for the recipient.

    Yup, had this one too. I remember this happening with ancient mail filtering software we used over 10 years ago. Thought that modern software could differentiate between strings in the mail body and stings in MIME encoded attachments.

    Is there anybody in here that has been set up as a Global Administrator? All of us techies at our school have been setup as Domain Admins and I just wondered if that was right or not. There are certain things that we just cannot do with that level of privilliages and we have to keep phoning BGFL
