    Default Zimbra Desktop export to PST

    I have seen this question posted many times, however, I have to export Zimbra Desktop emails to a PST. Now I have seen all to the related posts to this, however I am new to Zimbra, therefore, need a resource that would outline the steps to achieve this task.

    There is no need for debate as to why PST's are not a good format, trust me I know, however the client requests this format.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated in this request and apologize again for the redundancy.

    Best.

    Why would you think that this would export anything from a Yahoo mail server?

    There is not function within Zimbra Desktop to export mail into a .pst format, you'll have to transfer the mail from ZD to an IMAP server then import it into Outlook. Search the ZD forums, there's a couple of threads (at least) that describe how to do it.

    Thats the conclusion I keep coming up with. I was just trying to be thorough. It seems to me that if I wanted to "backup" a Yahoo email using the Zimbra client, I would be better off simply setting up a dummy Outlook account and set it up for POP3 and simply grab it that way.

    This exercise is for email preservation and the client wants the Zimbra archive. SO, for better clarification, the PST format was the preferred method for the processing software ingestion.

    I appreciate your response.

    Best.

    I have attempted to export out the email, however, I am not able to export the email. When I selected exporting emails only, I got the warning it was a 0 file size export. I cannot select the inbox as a folder for export.

    Any guidance is appreciated.
