Zarafa is a collaboration platform that offers integration with existing mail clients and mobile devices. It also offers its own web-based client. The introduction of WebApp is a milestone for Zarafa because the browser-based collaboration client goes beyond Outlook. This next-generation client includes multi-user weekly calendaring and advanced delegation via the browser.

Check out the new features in WebApp 1.4 here.



  • Enterprise features integrated in a web client
    An intuitive "look & feel" with delegation options that set WebApp apart from other web-enabled clients. Work via the browser anytime and from anywhere in the world.
  • Better and faster collaboration due to transparent interface
    Organizations benefit from user-friendliness and smart integration. This enables users to collaborate and communicate with only one application.
  • Lower TCO
    Working from the browser reduces maintenance costs immediately. The total number of support tickets will drop due to easier IT administration.
  • Facilitate effective communication
    Users can convert email threads to their preferred communication channel depending on time, priority and personal preferences. This will increase the number of interactions and empower knowledge sharing.

Key features

Zarafa WebApp


  1. Shared folders and calendar overlay support
    The calendar provides multi-user weekly calendaring and advanced delegation. Secretaries and management benefit from delegation and sharing options that set WebApp apart from other web-enabled clients.
  2. Fast user interface and loading time
    Thanks to smart caching and HTML5, the experience is akin to a fat client. The heavier processing of index results and searches is done by the backend.
  3. Efficient user context actions
    WebApp’s interface is designed with 'frequently used features' that are instantly available and located exactly where the user expects them to be.
  4. Plug-ins like chat and web meetings
    WebApp and its plug-ins deliver smooth integration with other communication applications. Plug-ins vary from chat and web meetings to social media expansions like Facebook and Google+.

  • Soft-delete restore: now you will be able to restore your items already emptied trashcan (up to the auto purge date).
  • Keyboard shortcuts: keyboard shortcuts are implemented to compose a new message or send a reply.
    Please note that this part is not completely finished. While implementing the controls we got stuck on browsers, the variation in keyboards over countries and different OS's. Feedback is highly appreciated!

  • Message in message: attach older items like mails, contacts and appointments to emails.
