Synchronize your accounts to Zimbra Desktop

When your account is set up, the initial synchronization from the account to Zimbra Desktop starts immediately. The initial sync could take several hours if you have a large mailbox or use a slow network connection. You can work in Zimbra Desktop while your account is being synced.

Important: Before you start the sync to download your messages, make sure you have enough disk space.

After the initial synch, when you are online, the synchronization settings you set for the account determines how often Zimbra Desktop syncs to your account.

For accounts other than the Zimbra account, if you do not want folders to automatically sync, you can turn off sync.  

If the network connectivity is lost while the data is synchronized between Zimbra Desktop and the server, when connectivity is restored, the sync resumes where it was interrupted. No data is lost because of the disruption.
