[Sticky] Carbonio Community Edition - New Release
According to the docs it says that multi-server is now required and single server is no longer supported. Is there any documentation as to how to migrate from an existing single server install to a multi-server install? For example maybe moving roles off the single server over to it's dedicated server?
Second question: Is there going to be an available Exchange ActiveSync function for the CE edition? Can Zextras Mobile be used or is there a possibility of integrating z-push? I know this is not necessary for the mobile devices because there is the app, however I have several users who like to use Outlook and currently use it against a Zimbra server using Zextras mobile.
I have successfully integrated Z-Push with Carbonio CE in the very same way I used to do it with Zimbra.
So this is the link to my tutorial installing Z-Push in the same server with Zimbra using a Docker image I did.
I'm also pretty sure that any other way to install Z-push and integrate it with Zimbra will work fine on Carbonio CE.
the correct command is carbonio-files-db-bootstrap. I have fixed that right now and it will appear in the doc soon.
I am sorry for any inconvenience. 😕
Grazie mille for coming up so fast! Yes, I forgot to mention I'm running on Single Server setup.
The Zextras crew is delighted to present Carbonio Community Edition 23.9.0 with various improvements and new features.
Features to highlight:
Enhanced Filters for Accounts and Mailing Lists
In the Carbonio Admin Panel, improvements have been made to the listing views of Accounts, and Mailing Lists. Admins can now sort and filter through columns more efficiently, allowing for better data management and quicker access.
Making the Life of Admins Easier
It means if users use a fraction of their email address/username/personal info in the password, then they will get an error as a security measure (i.e. Invalid password: password contains username or other personal data).
Delegated Admins are Restricted to Delete System Accounts
Delegated admins cannot delete system accounts (i.e. galsync etc.). Therefore, the admin can assign delegation without worrying too much.
More Assistance for Administrators
Carbonio is designed to be watchful of human error. So if a system uses external LDAP/AD for authentication and the sysadmin is trying to set up or configure user credentials, Carbonio will warn the administrator.
Preview Items Beforehand
Isn't it more convenient to get a preview of the item (doc, ppt, pdf) without even opening it? From Carbonio 23.9.0 you will be able to preview items without breaking a sweat of downloading and opening it.
Visibility and Agility for Domain Management
Global admins can now get a list of all domains of their system in a single list. Even better, they can click on the domain name of that list and will be redirected to the settings details of that domain. You can also do this using the drop-down menu of Domains. So feel free to be comfortable with the system however you like.
Dedicated MTA Panel
Great News! Carbonio Admin Panel has the much-awaited and expected MTA section. Now, customizing the behavior of the MTA of your server is not only convenient but also more elaborate than ever. You will find many useful options in the Carbonio MTA section, which were only accessible for system admins through the CLI.
Dedicated Public Service Hostname for All Domains You Manage
Carbonio allows you to set individual HTTP endpoints for all the domains in your server infrastructure. So, each time the user browses or interacts with the domain endpoint, Carbonio knows which domain he/she is surfing.
Latest LTS JVM for Carbonio
Carbonio 23.9.0 will run on the JVM17, the most recent long-term support (LTS) release of the Java SE Platform. A major security boost for the system.
Users True assistant

Greetings @arman, I want to thank first of all the enormous effort for the intensive development that the Carbonio team makes to deliver a quality product as a collaborative platform.
Is it possible to fix this bug?
This bug has been around for several months; reported since 12/13/2022 and also has no fix in 23.9.0
Thank you very much for your attention.
I appreciate your feedback and recognition of the Carbonio team's efforts in developing their collaborative platform.
I will remind the developers about the bugs. These bugs are still in the team's backlog, so there may have been some trouble fixing them.
@arman Hi, Great job. I have this error when trying to login (user and admin) after upgrade:
..../service/soap/AuthRequest 503 (Service Unavailable)
setup: multiserver/ubuntu 20
Can you help?
thanks in advance
@antonio Are all of your services running? You can check by issuing the command:
systemctl status carbonio-*
Certainly, I will consult with one of my colleagues and get back to you as soon as possible.
Hi guys, problem is solved.
Problem was not resulting from the upgrade but from a previous error with zmprov
java.lang.numberformatexception: for input string
make me suspect of a wrong parameter somewhere
the wrong command was
zmprov modifyConfig zimbraFileUploadMaxSize 47888000000
when it show be
zmprov modifyConfig zimbraFileUploadMaxSize 47888000
(Kbytes and not bytes)
Keep the good work and have a nice day
Congratulations for the new upgrade... many new nice things around making it more efficient and pleased to use.
MTA options are finally out! that's great but sadly some things are not working.
MTA -> Outbound Flow
"My Network" is greyed and didn't allow me to add anything. Even though I was expecting to see zimbraMtaMyNetworks value in there, it's not, it's empty.
But not only that, non of the options there are available to setup, like SMTP HELO Name, My Hostname, Fallback Relay Host, Relay Host and My Origin. They are all greyed and not allowing to edit.
I wish it's a minor issue and easy to fix.
