Scripting Zarafa 7.2.x Updates

Zarafa Collaboration Platform is the email server of choice for our new customers. With that said, we have a lot of these installations being maintained in production. Below is our second generation automation script to update Zarafa to the latest 7.2.x release for users who are not using apt-get. Note this script is a modified version (to account for package naming convention) of our original script located at Scripting Zarafa Server Updates. Zarafa 7.2.x updates can be found here.
