How to get the Zimbra iSync connector Apps
Maybe you are lucky because your company or ISP uses Zimbra as its email server. Do you know you can synchronize your contacts and calendars with iSync? But if the required Zimbra iSync connector is not provided by your company or ISP, it's quite hard to find. Here's what you need to do.

First, download the full OS X 10.4 or 10.5 server evaluation version from their downloads page (it's 200MB). After it's downloaded, mount the disk image and open the zcs.mpkg package with Pacifist. Dig down on this path in Pacifist: zcs.mpkg » zimbra-store.pkg » opt » zimbra » Jetty-6.1.5 » webapps » zimbra » downloads. Once at the bottom, extract zimbra-isync-5.0.6_GA_2301.MACOSX_UB.dmg somewhere on your drive.

Finally, mount the disk image and install zimbra-isync.pkg. Congratulations, you have now a new System Preferences panel called Zimbra, where you have to enter your Zimbra account information. Once you've done that, you can then sync via iSync.

Will this hint work for all editions of Zimbra? It seems from the following list that the iSync Connector is only supported on the Network Professional Edition.

If you point the iSync Connector at an OSE version of Zimbra it will tell you that you need a server license. So to answer your question, no, it won't work with OSE.
