Yahoo To Buy Zimbra

As we reported last week in Redmond Report, Yahoo will acquire Zimbra for $350 million in a transaction expected to close in the fourth quarter of this year.

Zimbra CTO Scott Dietzen was a keynote speaker at the Redmond Media Group Web Builder 2.0 conference last year, and he'll be joining us again in December at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. It will be interesting to get his perspective on what the long-range goal for this marriage is.
