    Thanks for the update. Is Talk v.2 included with the Open Source Edition as well as with Network Edition?

      Hi John – Yes, the basic Zimbra Talk V2 functionality is included in OSE, which is basically Zimbra Chat. To enable the advanced Zimbra Talk V2 functionality, you must purchase the Zimbra Talk license.
