    Default Can admin account IMAP SELECT user accounts

    Does the zimbra IMAP server support admin access to user accounts? I know about AUTH PLAIN, this is something else.

    For example:

    $ telnet imap.myserver.com 143
    * OK imap.myserver.com Zimbra IMAP4rev1 service ready
    1 login admin_user password
    2 select "some_other_user.INBOX.Sent"

    If this is possible, what's the syntax for the folder path from root?

    TIA

    So to answer my own question... It is possible to list another IMAP user's folders, admin right don't really figure in. There must however be parent child relationship established between the two accounts, via

    zmprov ma parent@mail.com _zimbraChildAccount {zimbraIDSecondary}

    After this is set one can login to IMAP (i.e. telnet or openssl) and do the following..

    1 login parent@mail.com password
    1 list "/mail/child_account" "*"

    and you will see all the folders in the child account.

    yes, zimbra has AUTH PLAIN machine. But I don't know how to use that auth machine to login as an admin and choose another mailbox
