Default More mail/groupware questions (Zimbra and Communigate)

I know we've discussed Zimbra in the past--I'm wondering if any of you who evalutated it also looked at Communigate, and if so, (especially since it runs on BSD) if there were reasons you decided on Zimbra.
We're still trying to make the decision. Phoenix, has your district made their decision yet? (Especially with the new licensing thing.)

We haven't decided yet. Although I'm very tempted to use the OSS version for the student e-mail server. We're waiting until after the AGM and all the brooha has played out in all it's many forms.

From what I see, you can't mix the two (OSS and paid) which is unfortunate. It looks as if we're probably going to go with Communigate which seems a bit more mature.

Yeah. I was thinking we'd use the OSS version for students, and the Net version for staff. Two servers. One with virtual domains for each school, authenticated against the LDAP directory at the school. The other with one domain, authenticated against the LDAP tree at the board office. Students get all the basic groupware stuff, staff get all that plust mobile-sync.

On paper, it looks like the best setup for us. We'll see what August holds.

We really like how standards-based Zimbra is, how accessible the data in the Zimbra Store is to non-Zimbra clients (CalDAV, WebDAV, iCal, IMAP, LDAP, HTTP, etc). It's also very programmable.

Just an idea. You might be able to use Funambol for mobile sync with Zimbra. I haven't investigated it yet, but I was going to.

Also, I just installed Citadel in a VM on my main server, but I dunno, there's something i just don't like about it.....and then the interface is well, a bit weird.

I am a big Zimbra fan, and I get beat up all the time over on the Ubuntu forums by the Citadel people. I am thinking about trying to install Zimbra on JeOS and see how that turns out. I sure wish there was a nice package solution like this that ran on *BSD.
