    Default restore an email?

    This seemed like a good place to post this...

    Early today I had a user delete an email out of their TRASH folder. Of course, they later needed that email...

    I've searched the forums etc - but can't seem to find any info on how to restore a single email for user? Is this even possible? Does Zimbra keep a copy of deleted items for a certain amount of time? Or is this a time to get the backup tapes?

    Thanks,
    Rob

    It is not possible to restore a single email of Zimbra unless you have the .msg file from the store. If you have this, you can use zmlmtpinject to inject it in the mailbox. Zimbra maintains messages in the store until they are purged by:

    Code:
    [zimbra@zimbra ~]$ crontab -l | grep -i purge
    # Purge messages
    0 3 * * * /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmpurgemessages > /dev/null 2>&1
