Backup and Restore > Restore Individual Accounts on a Live System

Restore Individual Accounts on a Live System
Use the zmrestore command to restore one or more selected accounts. In the event that a user’s mailbox has become corrupted, you might want to restore that user from the last full and incremental backup sets.
1.
zmprov ma <account> zimbraAccountStatus maintenance
Maintenance mode prevents delivery of new emails during the restore. Otherwise, the emails would be overwritten during the restore process.
2.
Run the zmrestore command to restore the accounts
zmrestore -a (account@abc.com account@abc.com)
3.
zmprov ma <account> zimbraAccountStatus active
Important: If a user account is restored and the COS that the account was assigned no longer exists, the default COS is assigned to the account.
