Email, Calendars & Contacts

Zentyal Mail offers a full mail solution with shared calendars and contacts and option to delegate mailbox access. It eases the daily communications and improves the productivity of the employees, independently of how they connect (browser, desktop client or mobile), which application they use or whether they have constant Internet connection or not.

Native Microsoft Outlook® Support

Zentyal Mail is the only email solution – besides Microsoft® Exchange Server – that implements natively the MAPI protocol. This means that Microsoft Outlook® users can continue using their email clients, without any service interruptions and without having to install any plug-in or connector on their mail clients or making any configuration change.

In addition, Zentyal Mail supports all the current standard mail protocols: MAPI, SMTP, POP3, IMAP, CalDAV, CarDAV and SIEVE. Therefore, if the company is already using other mail solution or it is looking for license cost savings, migration to open solutions is fully supported.

Support for Mobile Devices

Zentyal Mail also comes with native support for the ActiveSync® protocol. This allows to synchronize mail, contacts and calendars in Android™ or iOS smartphones and tablets without having to install any 3rd party application. In addition, it helps to support the current BYOD (Bring your Own Device) trend by enforcing security policies such as PIN, screen locking, memory encryption, etc. or remote wipe of mobile devices in case of loss or theft.

It also natively supports Group Policy Objects (GPOs), multiple Organizational Units (OUs), NETLOGON scripts and Roaming profiles, making the management of – even a large number of desktops – significantly easier by allowing quick software installation and upgrades, enforcing policies such as browser configuration or password strength, or restricting user access to specific parts of the system, changing default configuration or plugging-in external USB sticks.

Native Support for Windows® Environments

By natively supporting Microsoft Active Directory®, there is no change in how to join to Zentyal Directory domain with Windows® desktops and also Mac® and Linux® computers are supported.
