    Default Different mailbox size after migration


    I need to migrate account from

    Release 5.0.10_GA_2609.DEBIAN4.0 DEBIAN4.0 FOSS edition


    Release 7.1.0_GA_3140.RHEL5_64_20110329150833 CentOS5_64 FOSS edition

    I tried the script:

    /opt/zimbra/bin/zmmailbox -z -m $USERNAME getRestURL "//?fmt=tgz" > /tmp/$USERNAME.tgz

    /opt/zimbra/bin/zmmailbox -z -m UserEmailAddress postRestURL "//?fmt=tgz&resolve=reset" /tmp/username@domain.tld.tgz
    I notice that the size on destination server is much smaller than the initial one.
    For example:

    $ zmmailbox -z -m mailuser@domain gms
    522.03 MB
    The .tgz is around 120 MB.

    I copied the .tgz to destination server and imported it. After migration this is the result

    $ zmmailbox -z -m mailuser@domain gms
    182.19 MB
    It is a bug? Should I use imapsync? Imapsync is fine but the transfer is ofter interrupted with "out of memory" error..
    Thank you very much
