Zarafa is the name of an European open source collaborative software, developed in Delft, the Netherlands. The company that develops Zarafa, previously known as Connectux, is also called Zarafa. The Zarafa groupware provides email storage on the server side and brings its own Ajax-based mail client called WebAccess. Advanced features are available in commercially supported versions ("Small Business", "Professional" and "Enterprise" (different feature levels)).

Zarafa is designed to integrate with Microsoft Office Outlook and is intended as an alternative to the Microsoft Exchange Server. Connectivity with Microsoft Outlook is provided via a proprietary client-side plugin. The WebAccess has the same "look-and-feel" as the Outlook desktop application. People used to working with Outlook should be able to use the WebAccess without any problems. Personal address book, calendar, notes and tasks, "Public Folders" and shared calendar functionality (inviting internal and external users, resource management) can be handled by the software as well. The open source community edition supports three Outlook users. It can be downloaded at

All server side components and the WebAccess of Zarafa are published under the Affero General Public License (AGPL), based on the GNU General Public License, version 2 (GPLv2). Introducing and maintaining a dual licensing strategy, on 18 September 2008 Zarafa released the full core software, that is the server side software stack, under the GNU Affero General Public License, version 3 (AGPLv3).
