    Default Recommended Host?

    I am interested in setting up Zimbra for my company, but we don't want to host it ourselves. I noticed that Zimbra offers several reseller/hosts to provide the service, but I've never heard of any of them before. Can anyone recommend a host? It would be great to hear some success (or horror) stories before we drop a lot of cash and time on setting up a new service.

    Thanks,
    Dalton

    Well, the employees probably won't because we don't want to give a specific provider any "extra" advantage.

    I can tell you, I've heard of happy users from all of them.

    Thanks jholder. I can totally understand the creators of Zimbra not wanting to give any one vendor preference. Personally, I think it would be great if Zimbra themselves provided a hosting plan - it would be easy to trust the developers of the software to provide the service too.

    I guess I was hoping to hear from a couple of happy customers from one service or another. I've gotten PMs from a couple of vendors (thanks, guys!), but it's very hard to make a decision based on a website from a vendor I've never heard of, especially for a mission critical application such as this one.

    Agree it's hard.... but most providers will be happy to provide you with reference sites you can email and talk to about the service. OK, I guess no one is going to refer you to anyone unhappy but you can get a sense of what they think is good or not so good about the service.

    Or perhaps try things with a couple of accounts for a month?

    (I'd probably do both
