    Default Hosted Demo Signup Produces Error Message

    I'd really like to try out Zimbra, especially for shared calendar hosting, but I can't get past the demo signup.

    Here's the error page I got when signing up for a 2 week demo trial of Zimbra Collaboration Server. Live demos of Zimbra's open source email and group calendar software

    I got this after filling out the form, putting in the character validation stuff, and hitting return...used both Google Chrome and IE 10 on Windows 8.

    HTTP ERROR 500

    Problem accessing /zimbraDemo/public/CaptchaServlet. Reason:

    It's a shame that over a year after releasing Zimbra 8, the demo is still Zimbra 7!

    I've requested this on Twitter, this forum, and by email for over a year. With no substantive response.

    Is Zimbra that hard to install?

    Hi storm. I'm sorry you haven't received any responses on your feedback before. I'll definitely pass it along to the team. I'm not sure exactly why the trial is still Zimbra 7. But, it may have to do with the fact that the company is in the middle of a transition. So, please bear with us.

    Thanks for bringing this to our attention, VinceOutlaw. And thank you Tony for helping make the fix.
