    Default POP3 & filter (move into folder)

    Hi guys,

    Is it correct that I only get the emails in "inbox" when I use pop3?
    I have some filters configured that move email into specific folders. After I changed my email client from IMAP to POP3 I only get the emails that are left in the inbox.
    I only see one way to get all email into my email client -> change the filters. But how can I change the predefined "junk" filter? I'd like to check for false positives without using the webinterface.

    Any ideas?

    Cheers
    Andre

    I don't really understand what you're trying to achieve. Whay have you gone to pop3 instead of IMAP? IMAP is far better at handling email than pop (and pop doesn't have the folder structure that IMAP does). Which email client are you talking about? What is it you want to change on the junk filter?

    I am using Entourage and very unstable internet connections. If you have slow and unstable internet connections IMAP is getting a pain because of timeouts. POP3 is working much better in this situations and we do not need to argue about pop3/imap I also prefer IMAP and I am fully aware that I loose features. Because of the limitations I need to minimize to send/receive and everything else to be done offline by the email client.
    This is working so far and the only problem is the checking for false positive spam.

    Cheers

    I'm not arguing about the benefits of pop/imap I'm just trying to understand what you want.

    The problem is that pop doesn't have the folder structure of IMAP and therefore you can't access anything but the inbox. You also can't modify the junk filters offline or in your client, they can only be done through the web UI.

    I am happy to change the junk filters in the web UI - but I haven't found where....
    I don't want to disable spam for the whole server.

    Sorry, that was only half an answer from me about the junk filters. I meant that the junk filters through the web ui are affected by you hitting 'Not Junk' on any false positives that are in the users junk folder. You can also affect it via the kill/tag percentages in the admin UI.

    If you want to manage it via your client then you are probably best getting all the mail in your inbox, anything that really is junk should be forwarded as an attachment to the spam mailbox and anything that has been tagged as junk and is false positive should go to the not spam mailbox. That way you'll gradually train the spam filters.

    Default POP3 with a query string

    By default, the POP server will give you a view onto your Inbox and nothing else. However, the Zimbra POP3 server will let you specify a different default POP query. Please check out the "POP3 Easter Egg" section of this old blog posting for details.

    In short, configure your client to log in as user1{folder:bugs tag:p1} if you want POP to return all messages in the "bugs" folder and having the "p1" tag. Replace "user1" with your login name and "folder:bugs tag:p1" with your query as appopriate.

    Default Zimbra and Thunderbird

    I installed Thunderbird as an IMAP client pointing to the Zimbra server. Mail downloads to the In box, but the many mail folders I created via the web interface do not show in Thunderbird.

    I also use Outlook via the Zimbra connector, and that client displays all folders.

    How do I get the same response using Thunderbird?

    Right-click and subscribe to the folders.

    Default Thanks

    Thanks, I should have known that!

    Now, what about Contacts in Thunderbird synching with Zimbra contacts?
