I have been looking at both and the thing that concerns me with zimbra is
the closed box scenario and the EULA. I was assuming that its was license
was going to be GPL. But its YPL Yahoo. Does anyone think this is
something to be concerned with in the future? Meaning down the road zimbra
closes its open source edition?

What does Horde really lack from zimbra?
