    Like ?

    Other than not being made by Microsoft what is there to recommend it?
    IMO the web frontend is better - far more features than exchange - zimlets, search, document storage. It has built in virus scanning and anti spamming features. to get the functionality zimbra has with exchange you need to spend a lot more on addons - as well as the cals. It is also easy to integrate with content filters (free) which is good for schools. Zimbra can also be used as an NT4 domain controller when using samba with its own ldap server. in short it has more functionality and lower cost.

    theres two versions - the paid for 'network' version that comes with support contract and license to use outlook integration and the free version. I'm quite happy with free version atm, but would consider paying if we moved our staff exchange accounts to zimbra. Zimbra do offer special rate for academic network version,.

    If you have an MS Schools Agreement, the chances are you will have a Core CAL, which includes an exchange CAL.
