April 8, 2016 by Mike  

We are glad to announce the immediate availability of ZCP 7.2.3 beta 1.
This beta release includes some stability fixes, especially with broken search folders which have not been cleaned up over time.

This release also has added support for ACLs... Read full post

With this, postfix will silently discard any Zarafa autoresponder Mails, so that no mail loops... Read full post
