    Default It is possible to backup emails from mailboxes and restore independently equally

    Hi support.

    It is possible to backup emails from mailboxes and restore independently equally

    I need backup mailboxes independently by users, in case of loss or failure of these in a notebook recovered historically.

    Mauro!

    There is no backup/restore facility provided with the Open Source version of Zimbra, there is in the Network Edition.

    Search the forums for details of backup/restore scripts, look on the front page of the wiki (link at the top of this page) for backup scripts and also search the wiki for the word 'REST' for details on how to export/import data into Zimbra.

    And, just to fill in the blank on how to do a restore.

    You can take the .tgz file that is created and log into the newly created account and under preferences, do an import of it.

    The above method restores entire mailboxes.

    An alternate method would be to back up the entire zimbra directory...

    ...then create per-user backups...

    ...and restore individual folders if that's all you need.

    This might come in handy for users, like me, who have multiple gigabytes of mail.

    Or, perhaps you could use the REST method above, then
    1. Restore an entire user to a temporary user
    2. Share the mail folder you want to restore
    3. Connect to the share as the original user and copy items over.
