    Existing:

    Zimbra Open Source Edition
    Ubuntu 8.04 LTS

    Default More info on Desknow v3.2.10

    Desknow vesion I used allows only POP3 access.

    Looking at how Desknow is storing the data, it has the following directory structure:

    desknowdata\
    usermail\
    <domain>\
    <user>\
    Inbox\
    11a8ccfd307_N93M_34-0.eml
    11a8ccfd307_N93M_50-0.eml
    11a9e179bdc_49LX_8-0.eml
    *.eml
    Drafts\
    Sent\
    Deleted\
    Folders\
    FromFriends\
    FromColleagues\

    At the lowest are those .eml files.

    Wiki :: User Migration would be a good starting point.

    I have spent some time studying Desknow, the Zimbra CLI and the REST interface. The purpose is to come up with an automated means for the migration. I have an alpha version of the script which I have 99&#37; successful in migrating ~20 mail accounts and ~28,000 mails.

    The script just need to be cleaned up a little such as parameterise some settings (eg. domain, desknowdata directory location etc). I am preparing the publication of the script to Wiki::Mail Migration (from Deskow). Please stay tune.
