    Default Zimbra Standard vs Professional Editions

    This seems like an obvious question, but neither Google nor this forum could find me an answer, so here I go...

    What's the difference between Zimbra Standard Edition and Zimbra Professional Edition? I see they have different pricing structures, but what are the differences in the product? The compare editions page only lists the Open Source version and the Professional Edition.

    Thanks in adavnce,

    Default "standard" = "open-source"

    The Standard version is the Open Source version, as far as I know.

    The open source is available as a free download, so what does the $25 / user / month cover? Is there support included?

    Well, ZCS Network edition licenses and includes: all updates, upgrades, new feature sets, the knowledge base, private forums, HSM (Hierarchical Storage Management) and tech support. This will also allow you access to our MS Outlook connector (for those that want to continue to use MS OUTLOOK) as well as any MAC OSX users.

    If you'd like more info, you should contact sales. They can provide more information.

    Also, this document is really good:

    Yeah, I saw that page and I can see the obvious differences between Open Source and Network Editions. What I don't see is how that affects the Standard / Professional difference. If Outlook is included in the Standard edition, then it's more than the Open Source edition, so where's the difference?

    I'll try dropping sales an email and post their response here if it clarifies the situation at all.

    Ok, Jovi Poulose from Zimbra Sales sent me the attached PDF which shows the differences between the ISP / Email / Standard / Professional editions and the Open Source edition.

    Hopefully this will clarify the situation for others as well. Could somebody from Zimbra add the PDF to the web site?

    EDIT(KevinH) - I removed the PDF. This is subject to change and not something we publish. We plan to update the website in the near future with more details.
