Teaming Up with Zimbra's Collaboration Suite - page 3
Build It And It Will Be Easier
Zimbra seems to have succeeded in addressing most of the issues with today's run of the mill email. Of course, it's impossible to truly evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of a product in a an hour long demonstration.
The Collaboration Suite also has a calendar and contact list that are tightly integrated with the rest of the Zimbra server. Appointments, dates, names, and addresses are all coordinated across the applications.
The Open Source release came out about three weeks ago. Translations to languages other than English are being developed out in the community.
Medium and large organizations will probably opt for on-premise management of the system, while smaller business would be interested in a hosted management model.
A new networked product will be available around the end of October, offering various support options.
Licensing for the network version is $30 per mailbox per year. The open source release is free.
The current product shows a lot of polish and looks like a solid collaboration system.
