    building mailinglists

    Hi there,

    actually I have to decide wether or not to migrate to Zarafa.
    There are two points I am searching for a solution, if these
    points can be solved Zarafa is the tool we wanna use.

    First we need a grafical Interface to create Useraccounts
    and Groups. As I noticed, there seems to be a soulution
    with Z-Admin, is it useable now and working with ubuntu 10.04?

    Second there are some mailinglists on our Axigen System,
    here users from other domains are connected with users
    of our domain an exchange messages in a closed group.
    Is it possible to create such mailinglists in Zarafa?
    How to do that?

    All I found inside this forum seems to handle internal lists,
    where only users of the internal domain may participate
    as writers.

    Thanks for your assistance

    Hello Cdis,

    Z-admins first stable release was done 2 weeks ago. So that is a good option. It works perfect on ubuntu 10.04.

    For the mailing lists. Zarafa cannot do this itself, but there probably is a good solution for it. Maybe someone here on the forum has some good tips.

    Greetings,

    Hi Robin,

    thanks for the information, so the first point is clearified.
    Hope there is also a solution for the mailinglists.

    One more question, is there another possibilty to transfer
    emails from Axigen to Zarafa than doing it by IMAP, as I
    read in another task?

    greetings
    Frank

    Hello Frank,

    I do not know how Axigen can export its data. But you can import data into Zarafa via imap (imap sync) or the Zarafa migration tool via .PST files.

    With LDAP or AD plugin you can create groups and mailadresses for groups.
    So everyone in this group is getting the mails which will be send to this group.
    Maybe thats what you meant.

    Re: building mailinglists

    Hi KPaxx,

    thanks for the reply, but I am not sure if that's what I am searching for.
    What you describe seems to be just a distribution list, not a mailinglist.
    A mailinglist means, that everyone, who is part of it, may write to this list.
    AD is part of Windows, that's the wrong technology, LDAP ...
    Hm, could be an approach, I'll check this. Thanks!

    No, as it seems, LDAP is not a solution for mailinglists,
    it is a kind of distribution list also.

    In this special case, it are managed lists, this functionality
    should be given, else I can't switch the groupware to zarafa. :-(

    Greetings
    Frank
