Over at Linux Magazine, Joe "Zonker" Brockmeier takes Zimbra Desktop 2.0 for a spin
, comparing it to the email interface that Gmail provides. While there is much to like with Zimbra, which is open source, he found Gmail to be easier to use. "Another major feature for Zimbra is that it allows you to use pretty much any mail service. So you can tie Zimbra Desktop to an IMAP server that you control, and all your mail belongs to you. Totally. For some folks, this feature alone is going to make Zimbra (or another email client) far more desirable than Gmail. While I am sometimes uneasy with Googles ever-increasing collection of data, Im not personally concerned that someone at Google is reading my email. And Googles Gmail reliability has improved to the point that I havent had a problem reaching my mail in several months.
