    Default Is Zimbra Free

    Am I right in thinking that Zimbra is free?

    The Community Edition is free, the network edition costs 28 (or 30?) dollars per user and year.

    Thanks goetzi & rsharpe for chiming in. Here's some more detail on some of the benefits of the Zimbra Network Edition, including features and support. Cost of Network Edition is $28/user/year (can vary somewhat based on volumes).

    (1) Network Features -- available in Zimbra Network Edition
    * Full indexing of attachments
    * Zimbra Outlook Connector (coming soon) -- full synching of email, calendar, contacts between Outlook & the Zimbra server
    * Clustering: Native integration with Red Hat Cluster Suite, enabling N+M active/passive clustering across ZCS servers
    * Hierarchical Storage Management (HSM): Run a regularly-scheduled process that moves messages of a specified age from one storage volume to another (eg., put newer messages on high-grade disk, older messages on cheaper spindles)
    * Online Full & Incremental Backups: Do full or incremental backups, including the user directory, message store, index store, and message metadata, without requiring system down time
    * Online Mailbox-Level Restore: Restore an individual mailbox, a set of mailboxes, or all mailboxes, such that any mailbox not actively being restored is online and accessible
    * Online Directory-Only Backup & Restore: Backup the user directory independently of other system components, and subsequently restore some or all of the directory, without requiring system down time
    * Online Mailbox Move: Move a mailbox or group of mailboxes from one server/volume to another, without requiring system down time and without affecting other mailboxes
    * Delegated Admin (coming 2006): Allows hosting service providers to give customers admin-rights to their domains, for adding/deleting users & resetting passwords

    (2) Updates – Notification of, and access to, fully tested Zimbra Network patches, maintenance releases & major new releases.

    (3) Zimbra Support – Support via phone, email & portal (ticket-tracking), as well as full access to Zimbra knowledge base.

    (4) IP Rights – Ability to retain code changes you make without the obligation to contribute them back to the open-source project.

    (5) Rebranding – Ability to rebrand Zimbra with your logo, colors etc., and remove Zimbra logo/attribution.

    For further details, feel free to contact sales [at] zimbra.com.
