I am looking to deploy Zimbra at a new company that will have less then 10 employees for atleast the first 24 months.

I just want to confirm that I will be able to upgrade the Network Trial to Starter Edition once I have it installed and configured.

I would also like to confirm that the outlook connector is available in the Starter Edition also.

Zimbra Collaboration Suite is now available in a basic Network Starter Edition package for US $399. You get 15 Professional licensed mailboxes with native synchronization to Outlook and the Apple desktop, back-up / restore and more at over 50% off the normal Zimbra pricing.
I read the above as confirmation that it does indeed include the connector.

Thanks for all your help.
