LPS Zimbra syncs with Mail, Calendar and Tasks

At this point you have successfully connected your iOS device with LPS Zimbra. Your iOS device is now beginning the process of syncing your Mail app, Calendar app, and Reminders app with Zimbra data.

  • LPS Mail: Launching the Mail app on your iOS device should show you your LPS email.
  • LPS Calendar: The Calendar app on your iOS device will display YOUR LPS calendar, but no other calendars. (No building or shared calendars.) If you need to see building or shared calendars, launch the Safari App, go to LPS.org and log into Zimbra from the web. (More details.)
  • LPS Tasks: The least known feature of Zimbra is the built-in “Tasks” tool that can help you organize your to-do lists. These sync with your iOS via the “Reminders” app.
