I take it this is based on Ubuntu Server 15.04 which has an EOL in jan 2016 (in 3 months time)

"It will come with all the latest updates from Ubuntu 14.04.3", Zentyal is always based on LTS.

Not that I'm complaining but most of the stuff you listed is already in Zentyal - even 3.5 for the most part.  I'm personally a MS Partner with an Action Pack, so I've been using Outlook 2016 with Zentyal 4.0 for a minute or two now.
It seems to me that Zentyal is better than you're letting on is all I'm saying, can't wait to update to 4.2!!!
You will have to excuse my posts not having actual links in them.  I'm blind and can never find that insert hyperlink button LoL.  If you, or someone you know has vision problems check out The Tiki Lab.

Forgive me my absense, but did the policy change again to only use LTS again?
