Zimbra. Imagine having to pay for that!
That something is "free" (please let's skip the when is/isn't Zimbra free debate) doesn't disappear the need for resources to host, configure, manage and support it... and probably ditto for added industrial strength de-spamming/AV etc.
Edugeeks don't often seem to factor in the cost of their time for doing things like Live@Edu/Google Apps/Whatever. One tentative conclusion you *could* draw: They have lots of time to spare and the "hard, perpetually busy" talk we frequently hear, is in fact a crock. ;)
