    No support for LDIF files at this point.

    The interface for defining field mappings in CSV files is normally the first line of the file. For example:

    Code:
    "First Name","Last Name","E-mail Address"
    "John","Doe","john@doe.com"
    At some point in the future we'll probably have more options for importing (LDIF, vcards, a specific CSV flavor (thunderbird, yahoo, etc)), but at this point we require the mappings as the first line of the file, which we use to map into our contact model.

    We've successfully imported Thunderbird, Yahoo, Google, and various forms of Outlook CSV files.

    As KevinH pointed out, the best way to see what fields we natively support is to completely populate a contact within Zimbra, and do a CSV export.

    Default Thunderbird/Squirrelmail --> Zimbra conversion program

    Attached is a little python program I wrote to convert the exported address books from either thunderbird (v1.0.7) or squirrelmail (1.4.4) to a Zimbra format. It is a pretty simple little program, with only minimal checking/cleaning, but it seems to work pretty well for me. Hopefully it will be usefull to someone else.

    Sam

    p.s. the extension is .txt so it will upload to this message board. For best results change it to .py, and under windows (and Linux) make sure to run it as follows:
    python csv_conversion.py s squirrel_export.csv zim_import.csv

    zmlmtpinject is your friend. It should be able to load these files into each user's account. You may need to pre-process them a little but it should work.

    Do you have IMAP access by chance? If so imapsync is your best bet.

    Easy way is to export to .csv and import under options.

    I ran imapsync like this: ./imapsync --nosyncacls --syncinternaldates --noauthmd5 --folder INBOX --host1 server1.com -user1 xxxxx --password1 xxxxxxxx --host2 server2.com -user2 xxxxx --password2 xxxxxxxx

    It only copies over the most current messages in the INBOX folder up to the date of 10/11/05. It skips the older messages. Why is it not getting all messages in the specified folder.

    The server it's getting them from is running Postifx + courier-imap.

    Not sure. You may want to try without the folder flag and see if that helps. Not sure anyone else has had this problem.

    Are the dates on the 2 boxes in sync? I assume you did --user1/--user2 (not -user1/-user2). Did you try explicitly setting maxage/minage?
