Pro: Setting up Microsoft Outlook (Windows) with Zimbra Connector for Outlook Synchronization (ZCO)

The Zimbra Connector for Outlook Synchronization (ZCO) allows your users to use Microsoft Outlook to synchronize Mailbox, Calendar, Contacts and Tasks using the Zimbra Connector for Outlook for older versions of Outlook
It is available only for our Zimbra Pro accounts with Exchange Web Services (EWS) enabled.

Make sure your version of Outlook is supported.

Important:

  • All installations of Microsoft Outlook and Microsoft Office must have the latest updates from Microsoft.

  • Make sure Outlook is closed before installing ZCO.

  • Make sure your Antivirus software is disabled during the initial sync.

  • If you are setting up multiple Outlook clients, consider staggering the client setups so that they don't all sync at once and saturate your Internet connectivity.
