    Simply install the Open Source edition over your trial as an upgrade.

    Ah, i had run zcs/install.sh from the directory that zcs folder was in... seems to work better if you cd to zcs the run ./install.sh ... is this a bug?

    Code:
    Checking for installable packages
    
    Found zimbra-core
    Error: attempting to install i386 packages on a unknown OS.
    Exiting...

    Are you installing 4.5.7?

    Also, is this a x64 bit system?

    Ah, that will do it... I just downloaded .10... I'm a bit lost looking in the svn for the ubuntu .7 build.. would I be better off downloading the network .10 and updating first? Can I do that with an expired trial licence?

    You technically don't have to, you can install .10 over .7 as the installer will detect it, but we can be sure that nothing else is awry if you install the same version as your NE is currently.
    (from your profile version we see 4.5.7_GA_1319.UBUNTU6)

    FOSS .7 is at SourceForge.net:Zimbra Files More direct link to the ubuntu section: SourceForge.net:Zimbra Files - Ubuntu 6
    Certainly a fine approach, though I've never done it with an expired license - there is a bit of leeway, but the .10 installer might just find it invalid.
    NE: http://www.zimbra.com/products/downloads.html
    FOSS: http://www.zimbra.com/community/downloads.html

    Kinda also made me think that you had gone to ubuntu6 64bit (or ubuntu7) somewhere in there...

    Welp, I assume you've already compared the features you will be giving up, weighed what you can afford, talked to sales to get a quote, etc, etc.
    Anyways, you essentially install the Open Source edition over the top of your NE install to keep your data and convert to the FOSS edition.

    In addition to any backups you run via zmbackup in NE; please make a backup of your /opt/zimbra first! (and any directories linked elsewhere)
    Open Source Edition Backup Procedure - Zimbra :: Wiki
    about as simple as you can go is:
    su zimbra
    zmcontrol stop
    switch to root
    ps aux | grep zimbra (kill any leftover)
    mkdir /backup
    rsync -avHK /opt/zimbra/ /backup/zimbra

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

    Thanks, you've both been extremely helpful. Installing the .7 worked fine... I'll update it at some stage, but the main thing is mail seems to be flowing in again...

    As to the features of NE, I'll probably only miss the attachment searching and the online backup - I find Zimbra's web interface better than Outlook anyway (go tagging!! )

    However, I would definitely consider upgrading again if licences were offered in smaller groups (like, say 5). I know I could get hosted Zimbra, but I really like the security of having my own server that I control - plus its more fun .
