    For me personally, not necessary - I rsync to another box and take periodic snapshots. If I want granular backup I buy the NE. Ditto for the outlook connector.

    How about mobile support for opensource version? I think loooooooots of people would pay for that

    6. I would not pay too much (maybe $100 one-off fee) since I can also live with a few minutes of downtime per day. I have a script that shuts down Zimbra, then Dirvish checks for any changes (which just takes a few minutes for the whole server with gigabytes of data), and finally Zimbra starts up again. Should this ever grow to too much downtime, there should still be other free possibilities (working with snapshots should lead to just seconds of downtime).

    I add domain admins : if we add domain admins, I'd be able to get rid of my old qmail/vpopmails servers (300 users) and migrate everybody to Zimbra OSS.

    And once they've tried OSS, it'll be much easier to get them to NE 8)

    4. The forums are excellent, so support is not an issue. It would be nice to have per incident fees for major items/hand holding support
    5. If I could get a single user NE license for myself, and keep FOSS for my users, that would be great
    6. The backup module fee is a great idea. Now, if you could do that for sync/mobile support as well...
