Upgrade client-side testing checklist

The functionality we check during our client-side testing of upgrades to zMailCloud are listed below.

Caveat: while we make commercially reasonable efforts to test these and other features prior to upgrade, there may be bugs, even ones impacting the features we test, we cannot catch until after an upgrade.  This is one reason we don’t upgrade immediately when updates are available, instead first wait for the broader community of people using zMailCloud’s underlying technologies, such as Zimbra, to identify and fix potential issues.  Please reference our Cloud Policies & Procedures.

We welcome comments and suggestions to improve this table of client-side features tests.  Please note that we cannot test every feature, must therefore prioritize carefully, while our Operations Manager reviews every suggestion for features to test, we can only add select features to the list.
