    Default what features are in FOSS? - WOW is this embarrassing

    I'm getting ready to try zimbra. however, i'm not sure what the limitations are on the open edition. can i only use the pop3 for other client software? or is the html page included. I've read through the comparison. I think i'm trying to be too thorough. perhaps someone is willing to give me an overall before i get too involved in something i cant use....

    Hi Dave. This page should answer all your questions, I think. But very short summary--there are lots of us using Zimbra Open Source who are using the web client (called the Ajax client on the table), and also connecting to Zimbra using either the Zimbra Desktop or one of several IMAP clients such as Thunderbird or Outlook Express. With the Thunderbird Lightning extension we even have calendaring, though it's not perfect yet. We get spam filtering, virus filtering, and centralized monitoring.

    I'm sure I'm missing somebody else's favorite features, but these are the ones I use.

    Glad to hear it! We always enjoy good news. . .and IMHO Zimbra leads to more good news stories than the other kind, despite the "warmth" of some threads on the forum! Welcome to the club. . .

    Gonna change the thread title to something more descriptive - it's certainly never embarrassing at all to ask what features are in which version
    Welcome to the Zimbra experience!
