    Default How to restore only one mailbox from backup

    I am running Network Edition 6.0.1 and have automatic regular backups that happen. Full once a week and the rest are incremental. I have never had to recover anything from zimbra but I guess the time has come. One of my users has messed up his inbox and I need to try to restore it from one of my backups. I believe this is possible in NE but I am not sure.
    I see there is a nice GUI on the Administration Console but I do not know if this will restore the entire system or all accounts or if there is an option for selecting just one account so I have not tried it yet.
    Does anyone have a step-by-step or howto restore individual accounts or individual mailboxes? Or has experience with restoring just one users inbox?

    TIA

    Just follow the restore Wizard via the "Select accounts to restore", then restore it to with "Add a prefix to each account name" so you don't overwrite the current mailbox and the get the mail you need from that restored account.
