    Default UID COPY failed

    I just finished setting up my Zimbra server - great solution - easy installation process without any problems!

    When I connect a mail client to IMAP and want to move mails from one IMAP folder to another (e.g. press delete button to move a message to Trash or drag a mail to a folder called Archive), I get the following error message:

    with Outlook Express:
    ------------------
    UID COPY failed

    Configuration:
    Account: <my account name>
    Server: <my server's name>
    User name: <my IMAP user name>
    Protocol: IMAP
    Port: 993
    Secure(SSL): 1
    Code: 800cccd2
    ------------------

    with Thunderbird:
    ------------------
    "The current command did not succeed. Tha mail server responded: UID COPY failed."
    ------------------

    I found solutions to similar error messages, describing the error caused by mailboxes reaching quota limits. But there is no quota on my account.

    Message size maybe? Did you look in the logs? /opt/zimbra/log/zimbra.log

    I found my failure: thought I could move the mail store (/opt/zimbra/store) to another partition (FAT) and redirect to it with a symlink. But I didn't make sure the permissions are set correct. After moving back everything is o.k.

    Is there an easy way to move the whole of /opt/zimbra to a different (FAT formatted) partition with mounting /opt/zimbra to it or refering to it with a symlink?

    Not 100% sure but I think things will fail wth symlinks as we hard link messages and I'm not sure how the 2 interact.

    I'd like to move my mailboxes to another partition too (well, another disk really), to spread disk i/o load across disks and optimize performance. Is there a recommended way of doing this?

    Carefully

    Set up the partition to mount at /opt/zimbra/store

    Shut down zimbra

    cd /opt/zimbra
    tar cpzf store store.tgz
    mv /opt/zimbra/store /opt/zimbra/store.old
    mkdir /opt/zimbra/store

    Mount your disk

    tar xpzf store.tgz

    chown -R zimbra:zimbra /opt/zimbra/store (not necessary, but won't hurt)

    Then you can remove the store.old and store.tgz

    You can do the same for the index partition, if you like
