    Anteos & NOZIL, cc yourselves/keep an eye on Bug 15161 - add a 'recursive' option for REST .zip fetch

    But date must be in us format even in i'm in french in browser locale.
    before:today might help ya out (instead of putting a date string)

    (I added them to my first post in this thread for others to find easier.)

    Slightly different in 4.5.x but don't forget that can use the web-client options/preferences as well!

    (or in a url you could to the vcard by .vcf or /Contacts.zip)
    export/import of cals in .ics is also in the web-client

    btw also read rest.txt (& ZipFormatter.java takes care of the zips)

    (5.0.11/.12 has it nicely exposed to users -instead of remembering url tricks- in the import/export section of the preferences tab)

    Anteos has done some excellent work on fbackup! - Especially to get recursive folders working properly (using iframes) as if I remember right recursive=1 had some issues.
    To be honest my employee lfasci has developed the zimlet

    (Don't know if he wants to post it directly here or not because you are able able to sell your zimlets; though I hope this one end's up free - because I know it'll make the end user feel better about 'self backups' if they don't use a thick-client or something.)
    Thanks for your tests and suggestions, the zimlet will be released under the GPL license after some debugging works and improvements on documentations and features

    Two questions:

    When I get a zip archive of my mailbox as suggested in this thread, like so:

    http://server.domain.com/user/~/inbox.zip

    The individual e-mail messages in the archive all have the date/time of when the archive was created instead of the date/time of the actual message. Am I doing something wrong or is there a way around that?

    Does anyone know the status of the backup zimlet discussed in this thread? Is it available anywhere?

    That's just the file created date, if you open one of the .eml's in a txt editor you'll still see the 'Date' header intact.

    Say you choose to re-import with zmlmtpinject, you run a script to add the 'X-Zimbra-Received' header.

    -I'll let the seacom.it people post a link to their current zimlet.

    EDIT:

    I realize the built-in import/export on newer versions takes most of the necessity of your fbackup zimlet away, but just wanted to say thanks Anteos & lfasci for the good work you put into it!

    Default Zimlet Fbackup

    We have released an updated version of the zimlet Fbackup that works on ZCS 5.0x, you can download a beta version from our blog.
    The zimlet allows users to save on their PC a compressed archive, containing folders and messages.
    Any suggestion to improve the zimlet is appreciated.

    Does your zimlet work with shared folders ?

    I haven't tried it yet, but after reading the thread it seems one can only backup to a zip containing .eml files. It would be great to have an option to change the format to txt or html and have the attachments seperate.

    Well the issue I have is how does one drag and drop a folder that is high on a multi-page folder list onto the backup zimlet when it is a system with no scroll wheel? There is not a right click option.

    Default Zimbra Backup Accont and Mailbox script

    This is my backup script.

    #!/bin/bash
    clear
    cd /
    mkdir -p backup
    cd backup
    echo "Backup Zimbra"

    now="$(date +'%a')"

    echo "Backup Giornaliero: "$now
    echo "Genero Lista Domini..."
    zmprov gad >tmplist.log
    echo "Domini":
    cw -l tmplist.log
    echo "OK"
    echo "--------------------------------------------------------------"

    while read p; do
    echo "Backup Dominio:"$p
    zmprov -l gaa $p>mailbox.log
    mkdir -p $p$now
    while read j; do
    echo "--Bakcup Mailbox:"$j
    zmmailbox -z -m $j getRestURL "//?fmt=tgz" > ./$p$now/$j.tar.gz
    done < mailbox.log

    done < tmplist.log

    echo "Pulizia"
    rm mailbox.log
    rm tmplist.log
    echo "Backup Terminato."
