    Default Zimbra SMB Network Retail Packs

    I would like to propose the following:

    Zimbra release network editions in:

    5, 10, 15 and 20 user packs catered to the SMB marketplace, purchasable via the website.

    Typical content and costs:

    $25 per mailbox per year with 1 x support incident.
    $35 per mobile per year over the wire connectivity.

    This will ensure that Zimbra competes at the same user level as Microsoft's Exchange Server.

    Hi Raj,

    Yes I know about the 15 user, but it is just too restricted, no support incident, no additional user licences and no mobile connectivity, absolutely useless for any of my clients.

    The times have changed and 5 to 20 user SMBs require full collaboration not partial collaboration.

    I have setup over a thousand users split between, exim, postfix, exchange and zimbra, if Zimbra had had the smaller licence packs as detailed in this thread then they would have possibly gained a nice small yearly revenue of $25k, multiply that with say 200 other retailors with similar quantities and that starts to become real serious investment into Zimbra, please tell me how any company can turn that down.

    I think Zimbra and a lot of hosting companies are giving the SMBs a raw deal and hope that it changes, after paid for mailbox's keeps zimbra alive.

    So come on Zimbra, provide us with tools to make zimbra the SMBs number one collaboration server and allow us to compete at the same user level like your compeditors do.

    Agreed, we want the products and Zimbra take more revenue. A win win situation.

    Agreed,

    I have several clients and potential clients that can not (contractual restrictions with their clients and regulatory restrictions) and or will not host in the cloud. They would like to move to Zimbra but do not want to spend the extra money for client licenses that they have no plans on using. Exchange is cheaper for them even with the extra headaches.
