  • Works like a charm (this is newer native HTML5 based Zimlet) 

    By: rrao on on 7/1/15 for version 1.0.1

    Earlier reviews were for Firefox XPI plugin which worked for older versions of Firefox and was also Firefox-only. But, this current version for ZCS 6.x is an actual-Zimlet and is based on HTML5 technology. It works natively as long as the browsers support HTML5.

  • Same here, it doesn't work. 

    By: adoland on on 7/1/15 for version 1.0.1

    Win XP updated with Firefox 3.6.12, it does not work.Mac OS X 10.6.4 with Firefox 3.6.12, Mac OS X 10.6.4 with Safari 5.0.2, wow it works!  What's up?

  • Excellent 

    By: albanwr on on 7/1/15 for version 1.0.1

    Awesome, but would be even better if it worked for the Briefcase also! 

  • Firefox 7 

    By: devicegrip on on 7/1/15 for version 1.0.1

    This zimlet seems to have stopped working with Firefox 7.  When you drag a picture or PDF etc into the e-mail, it just has the arrows spinning and never finished.  There ia also an error: "Error uploading file" which doesn;t describe anything.  Any suggestions would be helpful since this is a great and useful zimlet.

  • Is it only work in ZCS 6.0? 

    By: Frankcolombus on on 7/1/15 for version 1.0.1

    I've been try this feature but it doesn't appear to work in ZCS new version, is it only work in ZCS 6.0?Frank - Casement windows

  • undefined 

    By: almafer on on 8/30/12 for version 1.0.1

    When I try to attach a file, the zimlet shows it as "undefined". There is a fix for this?

  • Fine, but how about pasting 

    By: ron@ronwhite.com on on 4/25/12 for version 1.0.1

  • IE support 

    By: bigtwig on on 12/22/11 for version 1.0.1

    Any chance this will be added to Internet Explorer?Thanks!

  • How about ZD ver 7 

    By: schroed0024 on on 6/16/11 for version 1.0.1

    I am using ver 7 of ZD and cannot get this zimlet to install, anyone know when this is planned?  When I drag and drop an attachment it sets up a URL redirection to the location on my hard drive which is not going to work

  • works well and a very convenient add on to Zimbra 

    By: cresp on on 4/5/11 for version 1.0.1

    This is a very good add on. Should be a standard feature. Without this, you'll need to browse and select individual file to upload. imagine if you want to attach 10-20 small files. It cuts down on the number of steps from 3 to 1 to attach one file. for multiple files the effect is enormous.

  • Russian Language 

    By: AnatolyPN on on 3/27/11 for version 1.0.1

    We have ZSC 6.0.10 installed on Ubuntu. We install Zimlet d'n'd, but with russian name of files work with errors. When I trie to attach some file (russian name) in Zimbra, I see the "abracadabra". With files (eglish name) there is no problems!Help! How to fix zimlet to work with russian language??

  • Deployed and working on 6.0.4 

    By: bkirkland on on 12/28/10 for version 1.0.1

    Hey all,Had a horrible time getting this working and wanted to share my workaround so others can benefit.You'll need to open up dnd.js in a text editor and search for "firefox3_6up" (without the quotes). Replace it with "firefox3up". Then follow Silverbait's instructions. Tested and working in FF and Chrome.I gave this zimlet a low rating because of the work needed to actually get it working. Once it's working, it's excellent. silverbait said:To corrext the problem simply extarct the zip and rezip the files without the sub folder like thiscom_zimbra_dnd.zip             |             |------->com_zimbra_dnd.xml             |------->config_template.xml             |------->dnd.jsDeploy using the ui and Voila!

  • Problem with Firefox 3.6.3 

    By: nicus on on 10/29/10 for version 1.0.1

    The zimlet doesn't work anymore with the new Firefox 3.6.3.Any suggestions? Thanks

  • Hi folks! Heres how to install when it fails! 

    By: silverbait on on 10/28/10 for version 1.0.1

    First of all thank you for this great zimlet...The problem is that the files in the zip are in a subfolder like thiscom_zimbra_dnd.zip             |             |--->com_zimbra_dnd                            |                            |------->com_zimbra_dnd.xml                            |------->config_template.xml                            |------->dnd.js To corrext the problem simply extarct the zip and rezip the files without the sub folder like thiscom_zimbra_dnd.zip             |
                 |------->dnd.jsDeploy using the ui and Voila!
