Alfresco Zimlet provides integration between two leading open source solutions, Alfresco Enterprise Content Management and Zimbra Collaboration Suite.

It was built on top of open technologies such as Alfresco Webscript, Zimbra Zimlet and YUI library.

It allows the end user to save incoming email attachments to the Alfresco ECM Server. The user is provided with the ability to select multiple Alfresco documents and attach them to outgoing emails. Links are provided for downloading Alfresco Documents when composing emails from within Zimbra.

Alfresco Documents and features are surfaced as shortcut links within the Zimbra application. Widgets are provided for ease-of-use in Alfresco space selection and repository navigation. A simple installation and setup is provided.
