Managing User Accounts > Move a Mailbox

Move a Mailbox
Mailboxes can be moved between Zimbra servers that share the same LDAP server.
You can move a mailbox from either the administration console or use the CLI command, zmmboxmove to move a mailbox from one server to another without taking down the servers.
The destination server manages the mailbox move process. The move runs in the background and the account remains in active mode until most of the data has been moved. The account is locked briefly to move the last data and then returned to active mode.
The mailbox move process goes through the following steps:

After the mailbox is moved to a new server, a copy still remains on the old server, but the status of the old mailbox is closed. Users cannot log on and mail is not delivered. Check to see that all the mailbox content was moved successfully before purging the old mailbox.

zmmboxmove -a <email@address> --from <servername> --to <servername>

zmpurgeoldmbox -a <email@address> -s <servernamee>
