    Default ImapSync to ignore Shared Folders

    Hi,

    I am trying to setup imapsync to backup the mailboxes but would like to ignore shared folders. Is it possible to do that. On the UI preferences->Sharing has a list of shared folders that the account is using, is it possible to get this through CLI so I can integrate it with imapsync?

    Thanks,
    Rojanu

    Default imapsync option to ignore folders

    Hi,

    Use --exclude option

    Code:
      imapsync ... --exclude ShareFolder1 --exclude ShareFolder2
    or even

    Code:
      imapsync ... --exclude 'TopShareFolder.*'

    The problem with that approach is that we have about 150 users and We really have no idea what folders user share. Therefore, I need to script to exclude folders and need a way of figuring if a folder is a shared from another user.

    Thanks for the reply

    While I support Imapsync as it is a great piece of software software for migrating data from and to nonzimbra servers, I think it's definately not what you should try to use in order to backup your mailboxes. You'll be able to recover single items about easily, but in case of a disaster you'll have a lot work to do to manually set your user and share informations back.
    I personally use ZeXtras Backup to backup my OSE servers, but there are many different options at Open Source Edition Backup Procedure - Zimbra :: Wiki
