The real clanger with Zimbra is it is a complete pain to install and 
cleanly integrate into an already configured server. It wants a clean 
server of one of a very small list of approved operating systems.

Because (A) it's expensive, and (B) it has a limited license count I 
only want to use it for a limited number of e-mail accounts. I've got it 
set up behind an existing Exim mail server that runs most of the domain 
and only passes through the mail for the mobile accounts.

Chris is right though, the Exchange Connector and the mobile syncing 
features are only available in the commercial version.

Having said that did I mention it syncs with my blackberry? That alone 
is worth the price of admission for me.

I've lost count of the money I've *cough* against the wall in the last 
10 years alone buying phones and trying to get them to do this.
