All different types of software seem to be affected by the Windows 8.1 update and now it’s time to talk about Zimbra, a collaboration suite of software that work with other browsers, like Internet Explorer 11 in Windows 8.1, for example. Here’s what one affected user is saying:

Zimbra don’t work on Internet Explorer 11 with Windows 8.1. It can’t read my mails on zimbra.free.fr. Free.fr says it’s your fault. Please remove the bug.

According to him, Zimbra isn’t compatible with Windows 8.1 and a number of other forums postings has confirmed the same issue, albeit Zimbra developer says the app is fully compatible with Microsoft’s latest operating system version. Here’s a little more info about what Zimbra does:

The software consists of both client and server components. Two versions of Zimbra are available: an open-source version, and a commercially supported version (“Network Edition”) with closed-source components such as a proprietary Messaging Application Programming Interface connector to Outlook for calendar and contact synchronisation.

If you’re a Zimbra user, can you confirm that you’ve been having similar issues?

    Win 8.1 works fine with the zimbra connector and webmail. We just tried it today. The person you are quoting is using some french ISP that is running an outdated version of zimbra. Before posting this kind of thing it might be best to gather some more information.

      So where did I did wrong? IT DOESN’T work for him, right? Anyway, will update the post. Are you an official of Zimbra?

      • h4rr4r

        No, I am a sysadmin who supports it at a company running this software for our own users. I have supported competing software and honestly there is not much comparison, zimbra is really good and their support rocks.
        It does not work for him because his provider is running very old software. This would be like complaining that office 3.0 does not run on Windows 8.

          Cool, would you be so kind to provide the latest drivers? I didn’t find them. Will update the article with links so people can upgrade.

          thank you again!

            What drivers?
            The Server software is available at zimbra.com and the outlook connector is found in that. For less than 10 users I believe it is free.

    I currently use Zimbra. Since I updated my version of Windows 8 to 8.1 I can’t read my mails because they are indefinitely charging. Do you know how I can solve this problem ?
    In advance thank you for your help !

      Quentin, I too agree with you. Yet, as of now, there’s no official fix to this problem :(
