    Default Move user between Zimbra servers

    Is there any way to move a user (just 1 user) from 1 Zimbra server to another? In many other thread pointers point to moving the whole server. I do not want to do that--I just want to move a user (or users) from one server to another running server.

    By move I mean more than just email--I also want to move their contacts, calendar entries, and aliases (and anything else associated with the user other than distribution lists).

    Thanks for your help.

    Default Network edition or open-source?

    Are you running the Network edition or open-source?

    The open-source edition right now. I've been using Zimbra for a small number of users and it's been working great for several months. For what my users need the open source edition is fine. If moving users requires me to move to NE I'll do so.

    Default Network Edition does single-mailbox move

    Moving single users is very simple on Network. On OSS, I don't know that we've ever figured out a good way to do the migration. (Not that there can't be one, but I haven't seen one yet.)

    Forgive my ignorance, but can I:
    - install the trial edition of NE on both servers
    - do the move of the users
    - then downgrade the original server while getting a license for the new server?

    This process may mean I move everyone to the new server, but I don't want to just upgrade the server--I made several mistakes in the early days that I haven't figured out how to rectify and would like to start from scratch (for instance I have 6 or 8 spam/ham accts in the "old server" and spam filtering simply does not work--it's probably all my fault along with starting on a beta version of the server but I don't want to bring that configuration forward).
