New Zarafa clients available for updated Outlook 2010 and Outlook 2013 (14th July 201

July 15, 2015 by Suyi  

Dear customers, partners and Zarafa for Home users,


Microsoft updated Outlook 2010 which disabled our collaboration features (shared calendar and contact ribbon of public folder addressbook). With this new client, these features are restored.

Outlook 2013 received an update from Microsoft as well, but with the new auto-detection technique introduced, a Zarafa client update is not required to restore functionality.

Affected versions:
- OL 2010 - KB3054976 - 14.0.7153.5000
- OL 2013 - KB3054940 - 15.0.4737.1000, not required

The new client is made available for Zarafa for Home and commercial Zarafa customers via https://portal.zarafa.com.

In this short time, just hours after this release from Microsoft (and before even the corresponding KB articles from Microsoft have been published) we have done multiple tests (automated update and manual) to verify restored functionality which we can confirm to work on all systems we have tested.

Should you enter into any issues which we have not encountered in any of our QA systems, please let us know - we are glad to help.

- Suyi
