    That's why I'm going to install gcc from the install CDs.
    Ah, that's why I use CentOS.

    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
    Thanks for the starter - it was of great help. I added a couple of fields in the thunderbird conversion (mobile, email2 and so forth).


    Greetings,

If you could post the CVS file then we can use it as a test case on our side.

    The scripts are not an option for our user community. We created a simple csv file for Thunderbird 2.x that has one contact. Users can import this new address book with one entry. The entry is actually the Zimbra csv field names.

    Once imported this new card can be copied to any address book. After this card is in the address book you export from Thunderbird as you would normally. Then open your csv file, remove the original headers & move the fake address to the top and now you can import into Zimbra. I expect this can be duplicated with any mail client...

    Default Address books

    Have a look at my post here about the tool called dawn:

    http://www.zimbra.com/forums/showthr...7887#post47887

    It is by far the easiest way to solve the addressbook problem from just about any mail client.

    You can set that option under Global Settings > IMAP in zimbraAdmin.

    Did I forget to tell you that, really
    Newer versions of imapsync include --authmech options where you can set which login type to use. There's also --ssl options.

    The version we have is 1.182. Works like a charm. Just migrated my 600 MB mailstore from our webmail server (running Cyrus) to our Zimbra server (running 5.0rc2).

    Default command line export?

    Is it possible to run the Zimbra Calendar and Address Book exports from a command line / shell script (rather than having users go into options and do each by hand)?

    If so, could someone describe how to do that?

    The following should work (IIRC):

    Code:
    zmprov sm user@domain gru /contacts.csv > somefile.csv
    zmprov sm user@domain gru /calendar.ics > somefile.ics
    to import back in:
    Code:
    zmprov sm user@domain.com pru /contacts.csv somefile.csv
    zmprov sm user@domain.com pru /calendar.ics somefile.ics

    There are many solutions for migration wizard. A web search turned up a few links that may be a starting point. In some cases it is required to transfer mailboxes from one imap server to server.
