HI There,

I am very new to zimbra and wanted to test the linux desktop client with work's exchange server.

I set it all up and was very impressed and used it happily for a week.

Yesterday I decided to delete an old folder that had a lot of mail in it only to discover that Zimbra decided to delete a lot of email from a lot of other folders as well!

I've checked the log and it seems to write several thousand lines a second:

2008-09-15 11:11:22,805 DEBUG [sync-timer-ben.wrigley] [] datasource - Deleting IMAP message tracker: mboxId=2, localFolderId=369, msgId=29418
2008-09-15 11:11:22,806 DEBUG [sync-timer-ben.wrigley] [] datasource - Deleting IMAP message tracker: mboxId=2, localFolderId=369, msgId=29419
2008-09-15 11:11:22,807 DEBUG [sync-timer-ben.wrigley] [] datasource - Deleting IMAP message tracker: mboxId=2, localFolderId=369, msgId=29420
2008-09-15 11:11:22,808 DEBUG [sync-timer-ben.wrigley] [] datasource - Deleting IMAP message tracker: mboxId=2, localFolderId=369, msgId=29421

But then I see some entries like:

2008-09-15 08:40:29,688 DEBUG [sync-timer-ben.wrigley] [] datasource - Remote folder 'INBOX': deleting 1 messages(s) from folder

which is fine

2008-09-15 11:11:22,809 DEBUG [sync-timer-ben.wrigley] [] datasource - Remote folder 'Current Suppliers/Cheetah': deleting 9060 messages(s) from folder

whoa! Where did that come from? Then:

2008-09-15 11:11:34,137 DEBUG [sync-timer-ben.wrigley] [] datasource - Remote folder 'Humans/James': deleting 9060 messages(s) from folder
2008-09-15 11:11:42,170 DEBUG [sync-timer-ben.wrigley] [] datasource - Remote folder 'Project Research/CRM/Firepond': deleting 9060 messages(s) from folder
2008-09-15 11:11:50,424 DEBUG [sync-timer-ben.wrigley] [] datasource - Remote folder 'Project Research/Email/Silverpop': deleting 9060 messages(s) from folder
2008-09-15 11:12:11,149 DEBUG [sync-timer-ben.wrigley] [] datasource - Remote folder 'Archived/Yvette': deleting 9060 messages(s) from folder
2008-09-15 11:12:21,758 DEBUG [sync-timer-ben.wrigley] [] datasource - Remote folder 'Humans/Finance': deleting 9060 messages(s) from folder

Note how it's always 9060 messages even though none of the folders had 9060 messages in. Also the folders it is deleting from seems to be pretty random.

Has anyone got any ideas? I've lost an awful lot of important mail so at the moment I can't recommend the client to my office.

TIA
