Zimbra allows you to collaborate with others by letting you share items such as folders, mailboxes, contacts, address books, calendars, documents, brief cases, and tasks. This sharing feature is very useful when you need to manage other's accounts but still use your own eID. To have several K-Staters share a single K-State Zimbra account, see shared accounts.
K-State Zimbra calendar objects are special e-mail accounts representing locations (rooms) and resources (equipment) that departments or organizations want to be available in K-State Zimbra for scheduling. See K-State Zimbra calendar objects for more information.
