If you'd like to use Zimbra, enter an IT ticket to have an account created. Once your account is created, you can go to https://connect.hampshire.edu and log in using your standard Hampshire username and password. The first time you go to the Zimbra webpage you may receive a message about the security certificate; in this case, you should confirm the security exception.
Zimbra includes an email address, but at Hampshire we use that only for Zimbra alerts. When Zimbra accounts are created, we forward all Zimbra messages to the corresponding Hampshire email account so you will see the Zimbra messages right away. Please note that you cannot act upon a Zimbra notification that has been forwarded to your regular email account. You must accept or decline invitations, shares etc. using the original message in the Zimbra client email tab.
Be aware that Zimbra email addresses are a little different from regular Hampshire email addresses: They have "connect" added before "hampshire.edu"; for example, "kmmLO@connect.hampshire.edu." It's important that when you use Zimbra to invite people to meetings that you use their "connect" email addresses, not their regular email addresses.
