Zimbra Archiving and Discovery : Archiving Attribute

Archiving Attribute
Four attributes are related to the archive feature. Two that configure a mailbox and two template attributes to construct the archive account names.
Attributes configured on users’ account
To set up archiving for a mailbox two attributes are configured on the primary user’s mailbox. One attributed enables archiving and the second shows where messages are being archived.
amavisArchiveQuarantineTo — The current archives address. If this is unset, archiving is not enabled.
zimbraArchiveAccount — Any previous and current archive addresses that this mailbox was archived to.
Archive Account Name Templates
In order to construct archive account names, Zimbra supports two attributes that establish the archive naming conventions. These attributes are used to create and manage archive accounts naming scheme. You can set up these attributes either by COS or by account. For COS, these attributes can be changed using zmprov mc. For accounts, use zmprov ma.
zimbraArchiveAccountDateTemplate. This attribute sets the date format used in the name template. The default is yyyyMMdd. Adding the date to the account name makes it easier to roll off older data from the system to backups.
zimbraArchiveAccountNameTemplate. This attribute sets up how the archive mailbox name is created. The default value is ${USER}-${DATE}@${DOMAIN}.archive. The archive account address would be like this example: user-20070510@example.com.archive. If you change the default value, you must use syntax that creates a valid email address. We recommend that you add .archive to all archive accounts to create archive mailboxes in a non-routable domain to prevent spoofing of the archives.
