Accessing your Zimbra mailbox from your Android device

The Information Technology Group tested several devices running the Android OS and found significant differences in the features offered in each one. We found that different Android devices may have different interfaces, which could change the name and location of menus and options slightly. However, the settings used in the configuration instructions should be similar for all Android devices.
