    Default Programmatically getting a user's contact list

    What's the best practice method for retrieving a particular user's entire contact list from Zimbra? Is this something that's retrievable via a SOAP request? I would like to do this for backup purposes.

    Thanks!

    Default

    zmmailbox -z -m user@domain.com getAllContacts

    will spill it all without using SOAP.

    Thanks, this is a great start. If I did want to do it programmatically does anyone have a reference or a starting point I could use? Ideally I'd like to write a small Java/Perl/Bash utility that gets all the user accounts, iterates over them grabbing that account's contacts, then inserts those contacts into the same user's account on a backup server.
