    Default [SOLVED] Zimbra webmail allows me to delete my imap inbox folder. It should not.

    If I add an external imap account in the zimbra webmail, it let's me delete any folder from that imap account, inbox, sent, etc.

    How can I lock it just like it does for the local account, so delete is disabled.

    Thank You

    When IMAP servers send down a folder list, they don't specify what types of folders they are, or if they are special.

    As far as I know, you can't tell Zimbra to not delete certain folders. Likewise, the remote IMAP server should be set up to not allow those folders to be deleted in the first place. (It's easier to protect from the server than by ensuring several dozens (/hundreds/thousands) of clients all comply)

    The imap connection is done to another account on the same zimbra server.

    Which command would let you set an undeletable flag on a folder?

    If it's another account on the same server, why not just use child accounts? It will save a lot of overhead and you won't need to waste space on duplicated emails.
