To help our customers and partners better meet security needs, Zimbra invested serious development time into the development of a new Two-Factor Authentication feature, and we have a totally new packaging system that helps in the Security and Administration of Zimbra Collaboration.

New Feature Highlights

More Speed and Less SpamZimbra Collaboration 8.7 comes with Postscreen at MTA level, postscreen daemon provides additional protection against mail server overload. By keeping spambots away, postscreen leaves more SMTP server processes available for legitimate clients, and delays the onset of server overload conditions.

SSL Certs for all DomainsIf you have multiple Zimbra domains for email the wait for official support for Multiple SSL domains on a single server (SNI) for HTTPS connections is over! You are now able to publish multiple SSL Certificate using one single IPv4.

Past Zimbra 8.6 Feature Highlights

Touch client for tablets and smartphones: The secure, HTML5 mobile web application provides a device-specific user experience for Android and iOS devices. The Zimbra touch client can be tailored through open APIs and fully white labeled. It delivers anytime, anywhere mailbox access, through a unique Zimbra experience, that keeps people connected to their data.

Offline Web client: Offline Web client support for Chrome and Firefox keeps Zimbra users connected, even when not taking advantage of native HTML5 data storage support. Users get the ability to work offline with access to one month’s worth of data. And, IT administrators benefit from an offline client that doesn’t increase the cost or management associated with a full desktop client.

Exchange Web Services: The latest release adds new Exchange Web Services (EWS) support, enabling all mail, contacts, tasks and calendar functionality in Outlook for Mac. Administrators can add Outlook for Mac to the list of supported clients for BYOD environments, and users get to choose whatever Mac desktop client they prefer.

The latest release adds support for traditional Chinese and improvements for system administrators including: syncing, connection security and share message support.
