    I used both the script (which I think leaves out some important data) and the full /opt/zimbra directory backup


    I'll work on the script once I have recovered from this and post the changes to the forums. I may also attempt a recovery script too, if I have time.


    with lmtpinject can I inject the messages from the /opt/zimbra directory backup into the corresponding mailboxes on a fresh install?

    Yes, but folder and read/unread data will be lost.

    I was able to recover the mail, thankfully, using lmtpinject.

    could have been significantly worse.
