    Hi wooby,

    As far as I know the 'zmrestore' util doesn't provide an "undelete" option that restores deleted/backupped mail to a mailbox without deleting new contents.

    However, you can restore all backupped data to a new address of your choice, and than move the mail you need to the "original" account using a share:

    zmrestore -a -ca -pre restored_ --restoreToTime "2011/09/18 08:00:00"
    This command restores all data backupped prior 18/9/2011 08am to an account called "".
    You now have one account with all the emails since 18/09 ( and one with all the emails prior to 18/09 (

    You can then share restored_user1's folders to the original account and move all the emails you need.

    Have a nice day,
