Configuring Zimbra Mobile with Android SmartPhones Devices

Android-based smartphones such as the Motorola Droid or HTC Evo will natively sync email, contacts and calendars to Zimbra accounts. The two pre-requisites to configure this are:

  1. The Zimbra email system used by your organization or service provider is a paid Network Edition license (ask your administrator if you are not sure)
  2. Your administrator has enabled mobility on your account

Assuming these two requirements are met, you configure Zimbra just like you would a Microsoft Exchange account on the device (this is the name used for any ActiveSync-based service).

In order to complete this set up you will need to know the following:

  • Your email address
  • Your email password
  • Your organization's domain you normally type in the web browser (eg "")
  • Does your organization require SSL access or not (eg do you use "http://" or "https://" to view Zimbra webmail)

Here are the basic steps:

1) From the Home screen, tap the gray Application button. 2) Tap Email. 3) Tap Next. 4) Using the keyboard, enter:

  • Your full email address
  • Your email password

5) Tap Next. 6) Tap Exchange account. 7) Complete the following fields, and then click Next.

         Your full email address preceded by a backslash
         (For example, \ Please note that some phones do not require the backslash.)
         Your email password
     Exchange Server  (same URL you use for Zimbra webmail)
     Use secure connection SSL
         (Ask your admin if this is optional)
     Accept all SSL certificates
         (Ask your admin if this is optional)

8) Select your desired Account options, and then tap Next. 9) Select your desired settings on Set up email, and then tap Done.
