    Welcome to the forums,

    Welp, I assume you've already compared the feature you will be giving up, weighed what you can afford, talked to sales to get a quote, etc, etc.
    You just need to install the Open Source edition over the top of your NE install (extract and run the ./ script) to keep your data and convert to the FOSS edition.

    Note: You're supposed to use the exact same version number as you had installed for the trial.
    Now, as I'll wager your using 4.5.7NE for the trial, see the links at the bottom of /community/downloads.html to find that.
    (You also should be able to do it with 4.5.8 just fine though)

    Also make a backup first!
    copy/tar/rsync your entire /opt/zimbra/ directory and keep as many permissions as possible (though there is a zmfixperms script to solve this if you forget)
    Also any other directories-like if you moved say the store or index elsewhere on your system.

    Of course you can always go back should you decide so later: Moving from Open Source to Network Edition ZCS - Zimbra :: Wiki
