    Default Scheduling of email downloads and time stamps

    I have an account records@xxx.com. It handles emails for records@xxx.com and also an external email storage@wow.net ... I have set the default time on the account to check for new emails every 2 minutes... but i still have to click on the link "Get External Mail" to download from storage@wow.net..

    any ideas on how to automate it ??

    Also.. is there a way to fix the time stamp on when an email is received ?? it is stamped with the time at which i click to download email.. and when the email was sent/received at the email server..

    Any ideas on how to get around this ?

    Default

    Try:
    zmprov mds records@domain.com <Data source external IMAP/POP account name> zimbraDataSourcePollingInterval 300s
    zimbraDataSourceMinPollingInterval is usually 60s or 1m or 2m & zimbraFeatureMailPollingIntervalPreferenceEnabled should be set to TRUE

    To cancel polling, set the attribute value to an empty string ("") or 0. Keep in mind that zimbraDataSourcePollingInterval gets inherited from the COS to the account to the data source. If a child object sets the value to "", it inherits the parent's value - if set to 0, it's turned off.

    No, the external account data source name (ie: what did you name the external account?)

    Then in your logs you should see something like "datasource - Importing data"

    ---
    COS should be like:
    zmprov mc default zimbraDataSourcePollingInterval 60s
