As far as I know Zimbra supports retrieving users from LDAP and using
Kerberos for authentication.
In the very latest code they also fixed using Negotiate auth to login
using Kerberos against the Web interface even when their proxy is being
used, so now all components of Zimbra should be usable with krb auth.
This means a properly configured Browser/MUA should be able to do full
SSO auth against Zimbra.

If you can test their latest release and report any gotchas in
configuration that would be awesome!
