Jump to: navigation, search

Zimbra is NCF's webmail system.

Adding Calendars

The default Calendar in Zimbra is blank.

You might want to add Canadian Holidays, or even your Google Calendar.

Holiday Calendars

Adding Holidays is easy. In Zimbra, on the left hand side, if you scroll down past your Folders, Searches, and Tags, you'll find something called Zimlets.

Zimlets are little helpers that enhance your mail or calendar use.

Click on the 'Holiday Calendars' Zimlet to get a list of holiday calendars from various countries, including Canada, the US, UK, and others. Click on 'Subscribe' to add that calendar.
