by Volker Weber

We are excited to announce today that Yahoo! is acquiring Zimbra to extend its email leadership to the University, Business and ISP markets. In order to focus on this effort, the Zimbra team will report to the communications group where we will remain fully committed to the community and to our customers and partners while leveraging opportunities to enhance their current experience.

As an authorized Zimbra hosting provider and integrator partner, we're also enthused about the news. Here's our statement: http://blog.01.com/?p=325

@Gray You may want to correct the "Services" link that is in the nav bar on the page you linked to. It goes here to services.html, but the host is admin.01.com, and there's no such page available from that host. The same thing happens with your "Contacts" link on that page.

I must live in a cave. I've never heard of Zimbra.

Andrew Pollack, 2007-09-18

So what happened to the Oddpost team that Yahoo bought some time ago?

Ian Bradbury, 2007-09-18

@Andrew - And I thought *I* was an out of touch Luddite. ;-) Please tell me you've heard of Asterisk / trixbox.

Charles Robinson, 2007-09-18

@Charles - I have a substantial business model already receiving buyout offers that is built around (in part) capabilities within Asterisk and have written custom code that I've compiled into the source of one of the apps.

How's that?

Andrew Pollack, 2007-09-19

Rob - Thanks for the hint, fixed the blog links.

Also, we just published movies of the process of moving to Zimbra hosting here:
