I finally got the Zentyal mail and Microsoft Outlook to work with Zentyal 5.0 (2013, not 2010 the last time). Yippee! I gave up on Zentyal for a while because I couldn’t get Outlook 2010 to work but now does with Outlook 2013.
You can add the Mail in the initial Zentyal configuration or from this post, install Zentyal, configure Zentyal and configure the domain, and then add the Mail. If you do the initial configuration then you won’t add the mail to each user; if’s already there.
If you use the latter, use the following steps I used to adding Mail and to get Outlook 2013 to work.
Installing Mail and Web Mail:
Click on Software Management/Zentyal Components on the left, and there it say what else you can add. I clicked on Mail and Web Mail.
It confirms the packages you want it to install and click on Continue.
It shows that the installation was complete. Click on OK.
Hitting OK it shows what other packages can be installed.
Now go to the Module Status and it shows all the packages, and if there are running.
Click on Mail and click on Accept.
You can Save Changes now with right top button or after you click also on SOGo Webmail.
Now Save Changes.
Click on Save Changes and it says Save or Discard Changes. Click Saved.
Changes Saved and click on OK.
Configuring Mail/SOGo Webmail:
Go to Mail/Virtual Mail Domains and it says there is not any virtual domains.
Click on Add New and make your own virtual domain. I added ‘bales.lan’.
Clicking on Add goes to Save Changes button.
Click on Save Changes and it asks you do want to Save or Discard Changes. I click on Save.
And then click on Mail/ActiveSync , check ActiveSync and click on Change.
Adding Mail to each User:
Go to Users and Computers, and click on a user you want to add Mail, and then put in the mail name you want to use. I used the username of jbales.
Click on Create and it’s created a mail account with your domain name.
Configure Microsoft Outlook 2013:
Log in with a domain user and open Outlook 2013. If you try to adding a Exchange it will fill in the domain user and the domain email address.
It can’t connect to the server and so you click on ‘Change account settings’ on the bottom left.
Check ‘Outlook or Exchange ActiveSync compatible service’ and then Next.
Fill out each piece on this form and click Next.
And you’re finished! Unless it will not connect – see following Note*.
Note: Sometimes I had a problem with not connecting or forever checking. Another comment on older post says to disable the firewall.
Click on Module Status and un-check the Firewall. Click on Save Changes and then Save.
