    Default Server crashed durring upgrade

    Hello everyone!

    I was recently upgrading to from zimbra 7.2 to 7.2.1, but my server crashed mid way through it. I've also just realized that my latest backup is several days old.. oops.
    I'm now in the process of migrating to a new server (and to zimbra 8), is there any way I can import user's emails into the new install (if i can recover them from the old sever?)
    I've only got one user (personal server) so I'm not interested in migrating the ldap settings or anything else, just the emails of that one account (and hopefully the filters as well).

    Does anyone know how to do this? I've googled around, but none of the zimbra commands I've found for migrating users actually work on my trashed install..

    Thanks a lot!

    Managed to upgrade to 7.2.1 after copying over the initial localconfig.xml file, the one that was being used by the installer was empty, hence not being able to connect to the mysql database (no password).
    Was then able to export and import accounts as tgz archives from one server to the other.
    Thanks for everything!
