    Default Zimbra Export Compatibility

    Hello,
    I need to export a lot of Zimbra Emails, Calendars and Contacts before I leave my job.
    I'm told I'm able to keep these Emails for continued consulting yet I need to add them to my own Email provider.
    So basically I need to archive the Emails, Calendars and Contacts now and then import them into another Email provider such as Gmail.
    I will not have the option of IMAPing data from Zimbra to another provider.
    How compatible are the exported Zimbra files?
    Thanks for any assistance.

    Are you currently using Zimbra Desktop? If you are then the email you have in your Zimbra Desktop will be an exact copy of the state of your server mailbox (assuming you haven't used POP3) and you've left a copy of the mail on your mail server.
    Regards

    Using Webmail.
    If I export in Webmail can I download ZDC at a later date (after I leave my job) and then import the mail to look at and manage in Zimbra Desktop?
    Thanks.

    OK but you posted this in the Zimbra Desktop forum. I'll move it to the correct forum.

    Yes, you should be able to do that but I'd suggest you try ZD before you leave.

    Installed ZDC and am just using that now. Will add new account when I leave work if I need access to local folders.
