    Default Zimbra as community driven free email service

    Hi all,

    The Zimbra suit is an amazing product that everyone should have access to. I first saw the system a few months back and was blown away.
    Since then I have been hopping to initiate a community driving free email service similar to Hotmail/Gmail - just based on Zimbra! It would be so cool to if ordinary users could take advantage of the Zimbra and if the entire project could be community driving.

    I have been reading through the terms to find out if such a project would be allowed. From what I can read it should be possible as long as we put the Zimbra logo on the page. This is not a problem as we would like to make it very clear to everyone that the system is Zimbra based and hosted on a community basis. Do you see any legal issues in the project?

    I discussed the project with a major datacenters/sponsor and found and they are very likely willing to sponsor bandwidth and datacenter capacity (a few racks). The company in question is using a lot of open source themselves and would like to “give something back”.

    What is your take on this project?

    Welcome to the forums.

    As long as you follow the licence requirements there should be no problem providing the service you describe.
    Regards

    Thank you for taking time to reply.

    We do not plan to change much on the installation but do consider changing the login splash screen to include our project logo along side with the Zimbra logo. We were thinking of something like “Mailbra, the community driven Zimbra mail platform”.

    As I understand the term should be OK as long as we make it clear that we use Zimbra…?

    That's close, check the details in this wiki article for the requirements and wording you may use.
