I just configured Archive & Discovery on our production system to point to a Zimbra 6.0.1 GA which works just fine to archive inbound- and outbound mail.
This solution may certainly be considered a nice auditable solution for worst case scenarios and security issues if you have to follow up conversations from a legal standpoint.
Now I am still looking for a proper archiving solution:
- Replicate items (mail, docs, calendars, docs, etc) from live system to an archive server (including folder structures)
- Delete items from the production system not being flagged and older than X days
- The archive server itself will be a Zimbra GA and authenticate users via LDAP based on the production server (uid=%n)
- Users will have access to the archive using http only
Does anybody has experience doing this - there does not seem to be a native solution/Zimlet available?
I already found the following script on the forum to delete messages older than X days from mailboxes. It simply misses the function to parse for paged results (more: true) as the server limits the result to 1.000 records.
I just found a set of perl tools at IMAP Tools. I just have no idea how I could use them without knowing each single user password!
