Postby jorgedlcruz » Mon Sep 21, 2015 2:47 am

Hi Community,


As some of you know, [mention:3fc0b949c35446ac80e21681d631d87e:e9ed411860ed4f2ba0265705b8793d05] is creating an amazing Zimlet to integrate ownCloud and Zimbra Collaboration, he started a crowdfunding campaign in the platform indiegogo, and you can still contribute to this amazing project. In Barry words:


Zimbra ownCloud Extension Zimlet


New crowd-funding effort from the developer of the successful Zimbra OpenPGP Zimlet


My goal is to develop a piece of high quality open-source software that adds integration of ownCloud to Zimbra. When the fixed funding goal is reached I will develop a Zimlet that allows you to:



  • Attach files from ownCloud when writing email in Zimbra

  • Save email from Zimbra to ownCloud

  • Expected release (for production) on or before January 2016.

  • No (recurring) license costs 

  • Open-source and free software GNU GPLv3



What could it look like


When writing an email, click Attach -> Attach from ownCloud...



Select attachment from ownCloud:




Or save your emails to ownCloud:





What is Zimbra


Zimbra is one of few full featured Email Collaboration Suites that is Open Source. It can be compared to Google Mail, Calendar but hosted at your company or in a private cloud.



  • I am an experienced Zimlet Developer and

  • An experienced Zimbra Administrator




What is ownCloud



ownCloud is a self-hosted file sync and share server that can be compared with Google Docs and Microsoft OneDrive . It provides access to your data through a web interface, sync clients or WebDAV.
