Managing Legal Requests for Information : Create Mailbox Snapshots for Legal Discovery

Create Mailbox Snapshots for Legal Discovery
You can create a query for the user’s mailbox using the REST URL format to search for specific types of email messages and attachments and have these messages zipped and saved to your computer. This zip file can be forwarded to a requesting law enforcement agency.
When the file is unzipped, each messages is displayed as an .eml file. The attachments are saved in the format they were delivered.
How to create a mailbox snapshot zip file
You must be logged into the ZCS administration console to create the zip file. You create a zip file for one account at a time.
1.
home/<username>?fmt=zip&query=<criteria_name>
In the above example, a zip file of all email messages and attachments in the Inbox after June 13, 2008 is created for an account called user1.
You can use any search operators that are used for searching in ZCS. For example you can search by folder (in:<folder_name>), by sender’s name (from:<someone>), and you can use multiple search terms. See the Search Tips wiki page for keyword examples, http://wiki.zimbra.com/.php?title=Search_Tips.
2.
Press Enter or the arrow to create the zip. A Confirm box displays, asking if you want to navigate away from this page. You do not leave the admin console page.
3.
Click OK. The zip file is made that includes the messages and attachments, a browser download dialog opens and you are asked to save it to disk.
This zip file is ready to be delivered. The names of the .eml files are the subject lines from the messages.
