Patched BETA clients for pulled MS Outlook updates

August 19, 2014 by Suyi  

Dear community,Microsoft released updates for Outlook 2013 on Monday. However, they also decided to pull the updates from their download servers after a couple of hours. Unfortunately some users have already installed this update. The updates especially seem to affect German customers.Normally this should have been caught by our autopatcher, but the patch is quite different from other updates in the past. Pay close attention: no action is needed from your side if your Outlook...

Quick release of updated Zarafa Outlook client

August 1, 2014 by Suyi  

Hi friends!
I would like to give you a short update before we head into the weekend at full speed. We’ve noticed that the automated Outlook patching mechanism needs tuning in some customer use cases. Customers have pointed out that some advanced collaboration features are disabled after the most recent Outlook patches. We have resolved this in the upcoming BETA release which is currently in our test lab. In the meanwhile, we would like to hand out the updated client. This updated windows... Read full post

Hi partners and friends,
Here is a short update from our side regarding the WebApp 1.6 BETA. As you may know, it was released two weeks ago. We thank the community members that have sent us feedback and input.
Some unpleasant bugs have come to our attention. With this second BETA release we want to address these issues:

When using the new HTML-editor (TinyMCE), [enters] are removed in your email (WA-6813).

In addition, we came across several issues during testing which were... Read full post

pam_mapi supports Zarafa's feature management

July 1, 2014 by Robert Scheck   Comments (0)

, , , , ,

About 2.5 years ago I presented the first public version of pam_mapi. If you don't know pam_mapi, please have a look to my project.
Today I am happy to announce pam_mapi 0.2.0 - which is supporting Zarafa's feature management. What does this mean? Since Zarafa 7.0.0 some features can be enabled and disabled on a per-user basis. If e.g. IMAP is disabled for a specific user any IMAP login will fail. More about this can be read in the Zarafa documentation, section "8.7. Zarafa Feature... Read full post

Lately I've been receiving a... Read full post

Zarafa-Inspector: A Graphical MAPI Explorer

June 16, 2014 by Jelle van der Waa  

Employees at Zarafa often want to debug issues related to MAPI and verify if properties are written correctly in MAPI. All of our developers use GNU/Linux as their standard development environment and often want to look into how the data is stored when they create an email (or for example import an EML). For GNU/Linux there aren't any tools which can connect to a Zarafa-server and display the stored information, so this blog article describes the development of the Zarafa-Inspector, it's usage...

ZCP 7.1.10 final with Click2run support has been launched

June 4, 2014 by Kiffin  

We are very pleased to announce the launch of ZCP 7.1.10 final.
Only one week ago we announced that the first release candidate ZCP 7.1.10 RC was available. As it was preceded by a significant amount of additional QA verification tests, we felt pretty confident that in the end it would prove to be the Real McCoy.
That's what happened. This final release is identical to the RC since no issues have been reported and all additional internal testing has not shown up any other problems. Indeed,... Read full post

Python-zarafa: high-level Python bindings for Zarafa

June 2, 2014 by Mark Dufour  

, , ,

As mentioned in my previous blog post New search using Xapian and Python, we are using Python more and more at Zarafa. For example, ZWS, the new Xapian-based search prototype, our internal testing framework and many custom system administration scripts are written in Python. The main advantage of Python over especially C++ is that productivity is greatly increased. There is no compilation step, so building software becomes faster and (remote) debugging becomes easier. Automatic memory... Read full post

We are very pleased to announce the availability of the latest beta release ZCP 7.1.10 RC1.

As release candidate this is the first potential version to be a final product which is ready to release
unless significant bugs emerge during internal testing.

As mentioned in the previous BETA1 announcement, this time around we were able to get in the last
changes to provide full support for S/MIME with offline profiles in MS Outlook.

We are happy to notify you that this version... Read full post
