    Welcome to the forums.

    You had put this in the wrong forum, I've moved it for you.

    You might tell us which version & release of Zimbra you're using? Which operating system? What, exactly, are you trying to do?
    Regards


    Bill

    You can easily share contacts and calendar with another account.

    AFAIK, if you want to _give_ (not share), you'll have to export everything by hand from the first account then import them in the second account.

    For e-mail messages you could setup an IMAP client like Thunderbird or Outlook with both accounts and drag-and-drop (or copy/cut and paste) messages from the old account to the new.

    Sorry, but you're not really providing enough information. Up to your last post it seemed like you just wanted to transfer email, contacts, and calendar from one user to another. Now in your last post you say "one mailbox is going corrupt". Sounds like you have bigger problems. How are your users setup (using Outlook, Thunderbird, Web Client, etc.; IMAP or POP3)? What is leading you to say there is corruption? Can you post any details from the system logs?

    Default I have the same question

    We are using zimbra 5 open source edition for our non-profit organization and I am wondering regarding the same issue.

    If one employee is not working at the current position any more and I would like to transfer all his emails, calendars and contacts to my account, how would I do that?

    What I did so far is set up alias, then emails that coming to the the old email address would come to the new (renamed) account with the new password. For some reason if I delete alias it locks up my newly created account and it has to be activated manually via administrator console. We are using web interface, no clients. But old employee was using zimbra client and I think it still has old settings that locks up my new account if I delete alias after 10 unsuccessful attempts. If I leave alias in place, it seems like new account can be accessed with old credentials because it doesn't locks. Security issue? So, I were thinking to delete his account completely and create a fresh, new account (not renaming old one) but I need all data from old one.

    Any suggestions?

    Maybe it could be done in the following way:

    1. Archive source user's data with the following command:

    zmmailbox -z -m <user> getRestURL "//?fmt=tgz" > /tmp/<user>.tar.gz

    2. Import this into destionation user's data:

    zmmailbox -z -m <user> postRestURL "//?fmt=tgz&resolve=reset" /tmp/<user>.tgz

    Unfortunately, I don't have any Zimbra instance available to test this personaly.

    2 years later, thought it was worth mentioning that this works brilliantly still with version 7.
