License Requirements
Several types of licenses are available:
*
Trial. You can obtain a free Trial license from the Zimbra website, at www.zimbra.com. The trial license allows you to create up to 50 users. It expires in 60 days.
*
Trial Extended. You can obtain a Trial Extended license from Zimbra Sales by contacting sales@zimbra.com or calling +1-650-427-5701. Trial Extended licenses are issued as Professional Edition licenses. Maximum duration is +60 days from request.
*
Subscription. You must purchase the Zimbra Subscription license. This license is valid for a specific VMware Zimbra Collaboration Server system and is encrypted with the number of Zimbra accounts (seats) you have purchased, the effective date, and expiration date of the subscription license.
If you purchase additional licenses after the original license, the Support portal shows the earliest non-renewed subscription order as the support date. When you renew your original license, you are asked to renew the additional licenses at the same time at a prorated price so that all your licenses expire on the original license expiration date.
*
Perpetual. You must purchase the Zimbra Perpetual license. This license is similar to a subscription license and is valid for a specific VMware Zimbra Collaboration Server system. It is encrypted with the number of Zimbra accounts (seats) you have purchased, the effective date, and an expiration date of 2099-12-31. When you renew your support agreement, no new perpetual license is sent to you, but your Account records in the VMware systems is updated with your new support end date.
If you purchase additional licenses after the original license, the Support portal shows the earliest non-renewed support mailboxes as the support date. When you renew your perpetual support, you are asked to renew the support on the additional mailboxes at the same time at a prorated price so that all your perpetual support expires on the original license expiration date.
