    Default Preauth and REST in one request?

    I have read with great interest both the documentation on Zimbra's REST and preauth services. I'm wondering: can both services be used in a single request?

    The preauth URL allows a redirectURL parameter for directing users to somewhere other than /zimbra/mail. From preauth.txt:

    "If a URL other then /zimbra/mail is desired, then you can also pass in a redirectURL:


    Given an HTTP client that properly handles the cookie, redirect, etc. would one of the REST URLs be an acceptable value for the redirect parameter? For example, suppose I requested the following URL:


    Would this allow me to get the contents of a user's inbox without needing to have their password (given a correct preauth value, of course)?

    Hi brharb,

    Did you ever find the answer to this? I'm trying to do the same thing. If I find anything, I'll post it on here.
