I've been trying to bring a recent in-spec zimbra 5.05 install (ubuntu 6.06, 4GB system) up to usability.
Things are mostly OK, mod the logger initially not working; I installed the deb pkgs libnet-ssleay-perl & libauthen-sasl-perl as described by a user with a 7.10 installation, and it started working, sort of - the console now offers the server status, tho it's self-described as (data is stale)
(I sent a call in to Support last Friday and got a very snappy robot response, but nothing beyond that.)
However, to the point:
I've added a user to the archiving function, and I can see that the expected account has been created, but what I've really like is to add that archiving function to a distribution list so that everything that hits that list gets archived.
When I try to do this using zmarchiveconfig, I got the following less-than-lucid result:
(firstname.lastname@example.org is a distribution list that behaves correctly AFAIK)
[the same command operating on a user account returned silently and produced the expected result]
#zimbra> zmarchiveconfig enable email@example.com
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NullPointerException
Is this a bug, or are distribution lists prevented from being archived and if so, why? Is there a workaround, using some magic interference with the mail server?
thanks in advance.
