    Question Migration mail accounts

    Hi Guys,

    I created the backup from old mail server. Now I have installed

    Code:
    Release 6.0.2_GA_1912.UBUNTU8_64 UBUNTU8_64 FOSS edition.
    and I have backup folder from old mail server

    Code:
    [root@gw-office /home/snake/mail/iococc]# ls -la
    total 60
    drwx------  9 lucron  wheel    512 Nov 12 12:55 .
    drwxr-xr-x  3 root    wheel    512 Nov 19 10:55 ..
    drwx------  6 lucron  wheel    512 Nov 12 12:55 .Drafts
    drwx------  6 lucron  wheel    512 Nov 12 12:55 .Sent
    drwx------  6 lucron  wheel    512 Nov 12 12:55 .Trash

    -rw-r--r--  1 lucron  wheel     36 Nov 12 12:55 courierimapsubscribed
    -rw-r--r--  1 lucron  wheel  16490 Nov 12 12:55 courierimapuiddb
    drwx------  2 lucron  wheel  21504 Nov 12 12:55 cur
    -rw-r-----  1 lucron  wheel    739 Nov 12 12:55 maildirsize
    drwx------  2 lucron  wheel    512 Nov 12 12:55 new
    drwx------  2 lucron  wheel    512 Nov 12 12:55 tmp
    I create the same account at the ZCS and question - what is the best solution to restore this data?

    The simplest way to backup the FOSS version is to just take a copy of /opt/zimbra, it sounds like you are using one of the various scripts out there that backs up per account. If so, which one did you use, as the process for restoring will vary depending on that.

    Also, from what version of zimbra was your backup taken?

    My backup is not from zimbra.

    Its backup from the FreeBSD mail server based on exim

    You could use IMAPSYNC to get the mail from one server to another.

    total 60
    drwx------  9 lucron  wheel    512 Nov 12 12:55 .

    drwx------  2 lucron  wheel    512 Nov 12 12:55 tmp
    [root@gw-office /home/snake/mail/iococc]#
    Folder per user

    Idea how to restore the letters?

    That doesn't make it easy, check this wiki article for zmlmtpinject or any other method that might suit you better. You should also search the forums for further details on the use of zmlmtpinject.
