    Question migrating bulk users mailbox

    Hello,

    I am very new to this product and one of our clients are looking to move a series of users mailboxes (85GB for 15 users), is there any way that I could migrate multiple users mailboxes at once. I am sorry if this sounds very brief but I dont have alot more information at this point.

    I hope someone is able to help me out with some information.

    Migu

    What do you mean by 'move user mailboxes'? From where to where? Which version(s) of Zimbra? Which of the forum threads or wiki articles have you read on this subject and what have you tried so far?
    Regards

    Hi Bill,

    I have had a look at a few wiki articles but as mentioned before I am very very new on this system hence my query if it is actually possible to migrate bulk accounts as all I seem to have found was command lines to export one by one. I will find out the version and get back to you if required but I am fairly sure that it is a very recent version.

    Thanks,
    Nuno

    Yes, that would help. What about answers to the other questions in my previous post?

    Hi Bill,

    Just got some more information from my supervisor, he actually would like to export the mailboxes to a MS Exchange system, not sure what the version of Zimbra it is as it is currently hosted by a third party. We are trying to avoid using Outlook export to PST as the solution.

    Thank you,
    Nuno

    If you are looking for Exchange to Zimbra migration then there is a tool Exchange Migration Wizard using which you can migrate the accounts from exchange to zimbra. Another tool PST Import wizard is also available to achieve the purpose.

    Not a right place if you are looking for Zimbra to Exchange migration.

    How about the Microsoft Exchange forums?

    Why are you actually doing that when Zimbra offers a better experience than Exchange? What is it you think is 'missing' from Zimbra?

    Hi Bill,

    I was requested to do this research from my supervisor, unfortunately I am not aware of the reasons for this, I think it might be just an option for the future if Zimbra is not exactly what the client wants, just to rest them assured that they can always go to Exchange if he is unhappy with Zimbra but I dont know any details of the project myself, sorry.

    Thanks for the help so far.
    Nuno
