    Default Corrupted emails and deferred index.

    Hi fellow zimbraers,
    Right now i feel a bit stuck with a little problem i have with one of our zimbra servers, and was wondering if anyone could be so nice to give some advise.

    My problems is that i have an account which i need to migrate over to a new server, and right in the middle of it something went wrong so things got a bit messed up.
    Whenever i try to access a imap folder that have problems i get mail.NO_SUCH_BLOB error message.

    At first i tried to restore backup a few times through shell, which ended with "cleaning up files, after failed backup" in maillog every time i tried it.
    I've also tried to use Lamirals imapsync software with addheader option to fix missing headers, but that also didnt move those corupted emails.
    Then i did read about how reindexing the account may fix problems like this but after one run i got a lot of these

    2014-01-21 13:46:19,309 WARN  [ReIndex-1] [name=xxxxxx@xxx.xx;mid=54;] index - Unable to generate index data for Message 208914. Item will not be indexed.

    	at com.zimbra.cs.mailbox.IndexHelper.indexDeferredItemsInternal(
    	at com.zimbra.cs.mailbox.IndexHelper.indexDeferredItems(
    and this one.

    2014-01-21 13:46:19,309 INFO  [ReIndex-1] [name=xxxxxx@xxx.xx;mid=54;] index - Deferred Indexing: submitted 166475 items in 81148481ms (2.05/sec). (0 items failed to index). IndexDeferredCount now at 59651 NumNotSubmitted= 0
    2014-01-21 13:46:19,323 INFO  [ReIndex-1] [name=xxxxxx@xxx.xx;mid=54;] index - Re-Indexing: Mailbox 54 COMPLETED in 81148490 ms
    As you can see, this is a very large account with 190gb of email, 700ish imap folders and 160.000+ emails so everything i try take many hours to complete.

    Any ideas are very welcome
