Please read through the release notes for install instructions. For all customers running Zimbra Collaboration 8.5.0, we would recommend that you install this patch. The patch process is quick, can be installed while the server is live (as a hotfix) and requires just a "zmmailboxd restart" after installation --  just a few minutes of downtime tops. As a matter of best practices, we always suggest testing the process first in your test lab environment. Please submit a case or post to the forums if any questions or issues.
