    Kevin removed the thread due to a *former* member who hasn't been very nice.

    We encourage you to use this (and other) threads in the forum.
    There have been some issues uninstalling on OS X that the Zimbra Team is working on.

    Perhaps the inappropriate posts of the "*former* member who hasn't been very nice" can be deleted, and the balance of the thread restored. It was a useful thread that may help people who tried to uninstall using the original instructions to simply delete the zimbra folder and pkg (as it turns out, not a good thing to do).

    I had a very frustrating disk thrashing problem with my computer, resulting from my attempted uninstall, that was not resolved for months — until Brian figured it out. I don't have his post and I can't even remember what he said to do, except it disclosed a folder with about 50,000 error messages that my system kept trying to deliver.

    I had referred your problems to Brian.

    Have you talked to him about your issues yet?

    Guys...

    bad "former memeber" or not. Can you please give some instructions on how to completely remove Zimbra from Mac OS X, please?

    I can't believe you guys are arguing about shiny icons and flaming about better using Exchange if all the user (and me too) wants is to remove the software from his machine. No explanation is needed as to why he wants to remove it. Whats's the problem with this?

    Thanks.

    If you have not yet tried manually deleting it, there is an OS X uninstall script that has a download link in another thread in this forum.

    If you have started uninstalling, the zip file in this thread has information that may help.

    Did you try the uninstall.sh script?


    BTW: Here is the additional info Brian had posted earlier.
    -----------
    Hi NXNW,

    The uninstaller will work for 3.1+ versions of ZCS.

    As others have pointed out the log entry is not directly generated by the zimbra install. It's generated by the /etc/periodic/daily/500.daily script when it calls the mailq command.

    The zimbra install modifys settings in /etc/syslog.conf, which would cause this message to be exposed in the /var/log/zimbra.log. Keep in mind that this command was always running, the zcs install just changed the file where the log entries where being written.

    To revert to the standard Mac OS X location change /etc/syslog.conf entries and restart syslogd
    mail.* /var/log/zimbra.log
    to
    mail.* /var/log/mail.log

    Again this will only revert the install to the default location, the mailq command will still run. The other posts related to this can be followed to disable this script completely.

    cheers
    brian

    ------------------
    NXNW,

    Also if your disk is thrashing when mailq/showq runs, there is probably a bunch of undelivered messages in /var/spool/postfix/maildrop from the crontab entries that failed to run during your uninstall.

    cheers
