Rumor: Yahoo-Owned Zimbra Exec Leaves

Rumor has it that the founder of open source e-mail firm Zimbra will leave Yahoo, which purchased the company in September 2007.

I’d expect more, not less, departures now that a new sheriff (just-named CEO Carol Bartz) is in town. When a new boss steps in, it can spur departures.
