    Default Re-create / repair an entire user account...

    Hello all,
    i have some problem with just one user on my zimbra 7 server (latest release aivailable)

    When i search a mail, scroll in the list and click on a mail, it scroll to top of window and the selected mail will not be displayed.

    I does'nt find any solution for this.

    My idea, export entire user data (mail, calendar, contact, briefcase, etc...) and re-import all data in a new fresh user.

    But, how can i make this??...

    Many thanks for your help and best regards.

    You might try reindexing the user's mailbox. Sometimes strange behavior like this can be caused by a corrupted index. When viewing the user's account in the admin interface there should be a button to Reindex the account in the toolbar at the top of the tab.

    Thanks, i have already reindex the mailbox, already empty all cache, on client and server side.

    No procedure to export/import an account?

    Many thanks for your help.

    If the mail is still readable from an export, you can go into the account and export its mail/contacts/calendars as a .tgz file within Preferences->Import/Export.

    It would be easy enough to test re-importing it into a test account to see if the mail/contacts/calendars are readable.

    This wouldn't preserve user settings, signatures, etc but would keep the data.

    If you want to go this route, I recommend restoring the backup to a temporary account just to make sure the problem does not follow with the backup as well as to make sure you got everything in the backup.

    I have Zimbra installed on an Ubuntu server, this is the command I use to backup an individual mailbox (Mailbox Acct = lhammonds):

    Code:
    /opt/zimbra/bin/zmmailbox -z -m lhammonds getRestURL "//?fmt=tgz" > /tmp/lhammonds.tgz
    Next, create a test account called "testrestore" and restore the archive by running this command:

    Code:
    /opt/zimbra/bin/zmmailbox -z -m testrestore postRestURL "//?fmt=tgz&resolve=reset" /tmp/lhammonds.tgz
    If all looks good, delete the original mailbox account (lhammonds in this example) and re-create the account. Now restore the data to the account:

    Code:
    /opt/zimbra/bin/zmmailbox -z -m lhammonds postRestURL "//?fmt=tgz&resolve=reset" /tmp/lhammonds.tgz
    Type su - zimbra -c "zmcontrol -v" to get your version and copy that into your profile (more info here)

    OK, i have find why the user interface was degraded...

    It's really a bug? It's really simple to reproduce this on other installation.

    If the "keybord shortcut" was disable for a user, the ui has this bug.
    If the "keybord shortcut" was enable, no bug...

    Mmm, ca you reproduce this on your installation?

    Many thanks for your help!
