    Default Account sync between remote zimbra servers

    Hi there,

    We've got a customer who is wanting to synchronize their mailboxes on their local zimbra server to our hosted zimbra services. Basically they have really unreliable net so when remote they'd come through to us instead of their own server, and still have access to their full account.

    Is this possible?

    i have a problem similar to yours, and i'm looking for a solution similar to imapsyc (which requires you to know all user password) and that works on network edition.
    still found nothing

    Below is an example of imapsync command using --authuser :

    Code:
    imapsync --host1 192.168.10.1 --user1 $ACCOUNT --authuser1 admin --password1 passwordadminserver1 --authmech1 PLAIN --host2 192.168.10.2 --user2 $ACCOUNT --authuser2 admin --password2 passwordadminserver2
    As you see, you must know the admin password (global admin) for each server for --authuser.
    and can i run it on a regular basis, for example like every 15 minutes?

    Has your customer considered using zimbra desktop. It will solve the offline issue and remove the need having to manage 2 zimbra servers.

    Yeah, I'm thinking thats probably the best way - it is a bit of an odd request!

    This worked for me! now i just get error messages when i run the script and there are contacts to sync

    Code:
    [Contacts]                          -> [Contacts]                         
    - msg Contacts/282 couldn't append  (Subject:[=?utf-8?Q?test?=]) to folder Contacts: 48 NO APPEND failed
    don't know why the contacts won't work
