Zimbra Outlook Settings or Configuration Explained

We all know Zimbra is a great open-source mailing solution. I already have articles on the installation of Zimbra.

Although Zimbra Webmail is very good, we have a habit of sending emails from Outlook. Instead of opening a web page to compose an email every time, it’s definitely easier to compose and send an email from Outlook itself. This article explains the settings/configuration that you need to do inside Outlook to connect to your Zimbra.

1. Add an account in Outlook

Go to add a new Outlook account:
