My GaTech ("Zimbra") Information: Configuring Outlook
Go to OIT's Software Download site and download the Zimbra Outlook Connector.
Before you install the Zimbra Outlook Connector, make sure you have Outlook completely closed. Be sure to look in your task bar near where the time is located to make sure the Outlook icon is no longer there.
Install the Zimbra Outlook Connector.
When you start Outlook next, you will be asked for your GT Account password. This is the password which is managed at http://passport.gatech.edu. Make sure that you leave the Email Address field as it is - with just your username.
After typing in your password, click the Apply button to verify it is correct, and then the OK button when you are done.
Initially, it may take a while to sync all of your email, contacts and calendars from the server with your Outlook.
You may want to go back into your settings and change the email address listed as your From or Reply-to. To do this, go to Tools > Options > Personas tab.
In order to change your From address, click the Add... button, fill in a name for the new persona (you can enter something like, "ECE"), and click OK. Make sure you have the new entry selected in your list, and type your name as you would like it to appear in the text field next to From, and select the email address you would like to use from the drop-down menu. If you do not see the email address that you would like to use in your drop-down menu, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
In order to change your Reply-to address, check the box next to "Set the "Reply-to" field of email messages to:", then fill in your name as you would like it to appear in the text field and select the email address you would like to use as your reply-to address. If you do not see the email address that you would like to use in your drop-down menu, please contact email@example.com.
When you are done, click the OK button to close the Options window.
