    Default Imapsync

    We are trying to use imapsync to move mail from thunderbird. We are experiencing mixed success. Some folders copy over great. Others error out right at the end stating - Couldn't append message # Then it finishes without syncing mail. Any ideas on this?

    thanks,

    Kinda confused -- Thunderbird's a client, so I don't know how you'd run imapsync on it. Are you using Thunderbird to migrate the messages, or are you using the imapsync program to do the migration?

    Sorry for the confusion, we are migrating from our current imap server (iPlanet) to Zimbra.

    thanks,

    Is there an error in Zimbra's mailbox.log? That'll give you a handle on what's going wrong.

    Perhaps your max message size isn't large enough to accommodate some of your old mail?

    I am currently running imapsync and a tail on maillog and I don't see any errors showing up. Would you happen to know what the flag would be to set max messages. If this is the issue I would like to set it to unlimited.

    thanks,

    You'll need to configure your zimbra install. The easiest way to do that is with the admin client.

    Quick note: One value currently isn't available in the 5.0.2 admin console - CLI commands can be found here: http://www.zimbra.com/forums/adminis...html#post78508

    Default IMAPsync - Attechment size

    The max attachment size it the only time I had those errors with IMAPsync. Took a lil while to find it but MMORSE points you to the exact link with the answer. Our company previously had no attachment limit so some of the files were rather large.

    imapsync --nosyncacls --syncinternaldates --buffersize 8192000 --host1 <HOST> --ssl1 --user1 <USER1> --host2 <ZIMBRA SERVER> --ssl2 --user2 <USER> --folderrec mail/ --prefix1 mail --noauthmd5

    just in case..after the max attachment got fixed that is the command that worked for me...and in some cases I had to use the split option
