    Question How do I restore a distribution list?

    Using the Network Edition and having good backups, I'm trying to restore a distribution list that was deleted in error.

    I've tried putting in the email address of the distribution list in the restore wizard, but it doesn't find it. I'm sure it must be backed up (or it wouldn't be possible to do a full system restore) but I can't see how to restore it.


    Edited to add: I figured out a workaround - I was able to reconstruct the distribution list as it was when last used by looking in the zimbra.log file, but would be nice to know whether it can be cleanly restored from a backup. Zimbra.log files only stay for five days by default, so the workaround wouldn't have worked if no-one had used the list recently.
