Coinciding with this week’s LinuxWorld conference in San Francisco, Zimbra, the open-source e-mail software that Yahoo acquired for $350 million last year, announced a partnership with Ubuntu parent company Canonical, and is officially coming to Ubuntu Linux.
Ubuntu users have been able to access Zimbra for the past year. But now, the e-mail software will be in the Ubuntu Partner Repository, providing easy access to both offline and online Yahoo Mail, Gmail, AOL Mail, and any IMAP or POP e-mail accounts. Zimbra also offers document and spreadsheet functions, as well as mashup features with services like Flickr, Amazon.com, and Yahoo Maps, Andy Pflaum, senior director of business management for Yahoo’s Zimbra division, said in a statement. “We are eager to offer our world-class collaboration experience, Yahoo Zimbra Desktop, to the vibrant community of Ubuntu users worldwide.”
