Hi everyone -
I have had two catastrophic events (zimbra degredation and then eventual failure) with zimbra and am now looking to take my ball and go home.
Now i am a newbish to *nix - and thats what i chalked it up to (my problems) so do not fret Zimbra workers and community - i fully support and am thankful for zimbra prescence in the OSS community, it is a hell of a product when it is working.
Just to touch on the reasons why i am moving on (back to M$) is due two major points. The speed of which zimbra preformed on the client, and slow degredation that was so painfully obvious. Day to day response time increased client interface, and when i restarted the server ... well thats why i am writing this post! haha
Again do not take this as hostile - i obviously wasnt able to properly adminster the server(s) in the proper manner ... ahem :S
Back to my last call for help:
I have a fairly dead hdd (after restarting my server) with my zimbra and emails and such on it. I have accessed the HDD via a ubuntu live cd and am trying to copy the /opt/zimbra folder away in an attempt to restore the raw emails if possible.
Is this actually possible? Can i retirieve the raw emails (*.msg or whatever the type is) without having to build another Zimbra server? I am happy to discard the calendar and contacts if i can retrieve the emails.
If anyone can help that would be fantastic.
Thanks alot in advance.
