    Syncing zimbra "tags" and "mailing lists" to iOS ?

    Hi,

    I am using zimbra 8.0.3 + ZeXtras mobile 1.8.6 trial with iPhone iOS 6.1.3.

    In Outlook it is possible to assign different "categories" to contacts. Then it was possible to search within outlook for a categorie and the you get the people listed.
    On zimbra it seems that "tags" is the replacement for "categories". But the tags will not be synced to iOS.

    Question:
    - Is this ZeXtras / EAS related?
    - Is this iOS / calendar app related?
    - Is this OSI layer 8 problem?

    The intention is to have different groups/categories in iPhone contacts to get a quick overview of all users belonging to one group/category.


    Further on zimbra you could create "mailing lists" or "distribution groups" - could not find the correct translation from german "Verteilergruppe". This is listed in contacts on zimbra web GUI.
    Question:
    - Is this ZeXtras / EAS related?
    - Is this iOS / contacts (app) related?
    - Is this OSI layer 8 problem?

    The intention is to search within contacts on the iPhone for a "mailing list" and then send an email to all the reciepents or a SMS.

    Thank you for your help!

    This is ZeXtras related, Categories are not yet implemented but we're working on it...

    It's EAS related, as the notion of "Contact Group" does not exist in the protocol specifications...
