    Angry [SOLVED] Zimbra Crash, need to reimport lost emails

    Posted on Desctop forum as well

    Hi Zimbra

    Have been using this wonderful email client until last night.
    I started updating, but when it restarted there was a error message, which of course I forgot to write down.
    Afterwards it didnt want to run, so I have reinstalled Zimbra, but I dont know how to get the email files into the account.

    Is it possible to install the older version, and then just copy the store files back in the same directory?

    Regards,

    Jonas Lillie

    Hi Jonas...I would be helpful to get the error to figure out what went wrong. Its probably best to install the same version. You mentioned that its an email client...did your zimbra desktop fail or did your zimbra server fail?

    Its the Desktop that failed.
    So is there any place I can download the older version?

    Much Appreciated

    That gives you all the previous versions.

    All your email files should be on the server right? So its just a matter of getting your desktop client installed successfully.

    HiUxbod,

    Sorry for double posting. I am just really desperate to get it working. I have alot of attachments that I need to get. My clients are waiting, and I could loose my business if I dont get this working ASAP

    Everything has been uninstalled now. All I have are those files in the 5 folders. around 5Gb I need to reinstall and get those emails back in the account, but I have tried to just copy them back, but when I do that, it still askes me to open a new account.. it dosent go straight to the emails. Is there a way to sync it. Also, are there 2 programs in Zimbra, a server and a client?? I dont know about how it technically works.

    Remember this software is currently in beta so if your concern is running a business and stability it may be better waiting for 1.0 GA.

    Hopefully one of the desktop client team will be able to advice you.

    Yes desktop and server are two different products. Have a look at http://www.zimbra.com/products/ which shows the different software Zimbra produces.

    Good luck.
