commercial, both have free/community versions. I'm looking at less than
a dozen accounts, and most will be accessed by Linux (kde, gnome or
enlightement). Zimbra seems fairly mature. Hula would also be a

non-existent, and the sections that do have information generally have
Does anyone have experience deploying any of these servers? How painful
is migration of existing mail stores to the other systems? Am I missing
