    Default Forcing mailbox delegation

    Greetings! I'm currently running Zimbra 5.0.1 FOSS on a test server (CentOS 5.1) and have what I hope is a simple issue...

    I currently run Cyrus IMAP on our production mail server and use cyradm to set ACL's granting a manager access to subordinate mailboxes. I understand the "share folder" concept in Zimbra, but I'm wondering if there is a way to force ACL's on a user's mailstore so I don't have to manually share every folder of every user?

    Thanks for any input and also thank to the Zimbra team for such an awesome product.

    At present, there's no way to say "user A has admin rights to user B's mailbox" without explicitly setting an ACL. (ACLs are inherited until overridden in Zimbra, so if you share A's root folder via zmmailbox, B will initially have access to all of A's folders.) And ACLs are always revokable by the mailbox owner, which may not be exactly what you want.

    There are plans to add finer-grained delegated admin in future versions, but it's not available in 5.0.

    Very cool! That sounds like an easily scriptable solution for now. I'll play around with that and see. Thanks for the quick response!
