    Default Separate Server for Archiving?

    Is it possible to create a separate Zimbra server just to handle archiving?
    The purpose of doing this is to enhance security so that administrators who have access to the main Zimbra server cannot access the archive Zimbra server etc.
    This is also for backup in case the main Zimbra server breakdown, we can still access the archived emails on the archive Zimbra server.

    Yes,

    Just add a new mailbox server, and set your CoS's up so that archived accounts only go to the mailbox server that you designate for archive accounts, and set the other CoS's up so that the archive server is not selected as a valid server for the rest of them.

    Must the new mailbox server be of the same version? Can I setup a new Zimbra 8 server to archive existing Zimbra 7 mailboxes? If not, what happen to the new Zimbra 7 Server setup to archive existing Zimbra server that I intend to upgrade to 8?
