    Default Txt migration

    I was wondering it was possible to take emails basically formatted as txt files and insert them into my zimbra server as an email.

    I came from
    afterlogic, windows server 08, and sql server 08
    to
    zimbra open source 7.0.1, debian 6.0, and mysql 5.1

    Everything works great, I would just like to take all my old backed up emails and drop them back into the correct mailbox.

    I was playing trying to add them /opt/zimbra/store/0/1/msg/.... with the rest of that mailbox's message but it would not show up in the mailbox.

    That would depend if they were valid emails with headers etc., take a look at some of the migration techniques here: http://wiki.zimbra.com/wiki/Mail_Migration- specifically 'zmlmtpinject' and see if they do what you need.

    Thank you I will check them out and yes they are vaild emails with headers etc... My only concern without looking at the link yet is that the other system would still have to be running and I shut down that server, the emails are backed up and I was wondering if I could simply add them somewhere to get them back, I suppose I could reload windows on an old pc and load in my emails that way and try to use a migration tool, just seems like a lot of extra work.
