    Default Create network "Archive" folder extra quota for users

    Hi to all,

    we have to find a solution to give to all user a "network archive folder" over quota counting (with different SLA, performance, etc...) is it a way to do it in Zimbra?

    (Zimbra 7.1 Open Source Edition; Ubuntu 10.04 LTS server, 3000 single users)

    Thanks to all.

    Luca

    It's not exactly what you are asking, but you may find that using Zimbra's HSM feature will work.

    HSM = Hierarchical Storage Management and enables you to put (typically) older emails and other items on lower-cost storage.

    There's a good writeup in the Network Edition Administrator's Guide.

    Hope that helps,
    Mark

    HSM is also available in open source edition?

    HSM is not available in the OSE; NE only.

    But you could add a new Message Volume instead:

    Open the Admin Console > Servers group > (select your server) > Volumes tab.

    Since only one message volume can be primary, when you make a new message volume it becomes primary and no new mail is added to the older message volume.

    So, you could add a new message volume on a new fast disk array, then shut down Zimbra and copy the now-static original message volume to a new slow disk array. Edit /etc/fstab accordingly, remount the original message volume after the copying completes, restart Zimbra and then unmount the original disk on which the original message volume had been living and repurpose that fast disk elsewhere.

    Hope that helps,

    My goal it's to give to user a folder to store old messages or non important messages.

    If i well understand your post in this way i can only "separate" the past to new messages.. not dynamically manage emails, right?

    That's exactly right -- if you want to keep ALL email on the Zimbra server.

    If you are OK with users downloading email to a mapped drive on their PC, you could use one of the zimlets that do variations of this, e.g Email Downloader | Zimbra :: Gallery.

    Since many of our clients have regulatory requirements which effectively mandate keeping email on the server, we don't use these kinds of features.

    But if your users can manage this sort of thing themselves, it might work for you.

    Hope that helps,
