    Default Mac Mail folder import

    hi, I have ben searching and finding a lot of answers on server installs, but what I am trying to do is import, copy extract, or whatever all of my mail folders in iMail on OSX into the mac Zimbra desktop version. I have 3 accounts, all pop, and when I set them up, all the email still on the mail server (gmail, etc.) comes in, but I want all of my "filed emails" to be imported as the are also.

    thanks in advance for any help here, and go easy on a total noob on Zimbra!

    Welcome to the forums,
    I assume your "filed emails" = local folders for your POP accounts. You'll probably have to upload them somewhere/copy them from iMail to a ZCS server/IMAP account first - then connect Zimbra Desktop to that account.

    thanks for the fast reply...yes, the folders are local on my mac, unfortunately I have no imap account that I am aware of, and can barely spell imap, let alone know how it all works. guess I have some reading to do. any other pointers would be appreciated!

    scott!

    edit...ok, so it appears my gmail account supports imap, off to work i go!

    Default importing from Mac

    This is much easier than it seems. Simply create a new account in your Mac mail program that points to your Zimbra IMAP server.

    Then simply drag your mailboxes from your local mail into the zimbra server. As long as you don't have too many toplevel email folders, this is probably the quickest/easiest way.

    not sure what that means, I have the desktop zimbra, no zimbra server. would I set up the same gmail account in zimbra, and then try the copy?

    thanks for the reply here, I am just a little slow at this.

    edit - ok, got it, I was hoping to copy entire folder, as I have multiple sub-folders. opening the folder and copying the emails worked.
    thanks again for the assist.
