All of a sudden, after a couple years of use, my archived Local Folders just disappeared. I'd like to know why this happened and if the folders are still in existence. It's not a secure feeling to think that this could happen. The college I work for counts on being able to return to these emails in years hence. Thanks for your help in solving this troubling situation. I use Zimbra Desktop because it has this Local Folders feature, which is not offered by our regular Zimbra email account. I'm not sure why this is the case. It's an important option to be able to archive the emails through my department.
