I’ve been playing around with Zimbra opensource edition on my development server. Zimbra is a full-featured, open source collaboration suite for email, group calendaring, contacts, and web document management and authoring. web interface is equipped with AJAX and it is compatible with clients such as Outlook, Apple Mail, and Novell Evolution so that mail, contacts, and calendar items can be synchronised from these to the ZCS server. It also can be synchronized to many mobile devices. ZCS makes use of many existing open source projects such as Postfix, MySQL, and OpenLDAP.
In this experiment i was using Zimbra 64bit_x86 opensource edition
