[SOLVED] Is there a .pst like function available?
We own the network edition and are about to go live in July. In this change, we are no longer using outlook (on purpose), so we will lose the .pst functionality for personal email storage files. Is there anything in the works, or already there (that I missed) in ZWC or the ZDesktop to create this type of functionality?:confused:
Zimbra .PST Custom Storage File???
In our environment, we have Outlook .pst files created automatically via scripting (thanks to scriptlogic), so our admin users are trained to move messages into their personal folders (pst files), to minimize their 100MB inbox. People like me in IT, have about 6 .Pst files (each of which can store 2 GB max. My request, concern is how will the new Zimbra users, without Outlook, using ZWC or ZDesktop have the same functionallity? As we move to Zimbra and ditch Outlook for security reasons, is there anything now, or in beta that Zimbra can provide to have a .pst like experience?
I agree that server storage of all email is better in this situation, but I am not willing to give them 6 GB of email storage. I would like to give them 1GB of storage, then use a personal storage file type of system for them. I am looking into the long run for this concern.
I hope I have made this clear.
Unless I am missing something in Zimbra, they stilll do not have a .pst like way for users to archive email. To add, our users' .pst files are in their network folder (home directory), so we back them up). What I am asking Zimbra to do is to do the exact same feature of Outlook. Zimbra could create its own .pst extension and allow the ZWC or the Zdesktop to access the custom Zimbra storage file. If Zimbra had this, they would now have the final edge over Outlook.
As far as I can tell, Zimbra does not have this. This needs to happen to be as powerful as Outlook. Maybe I missed a feature, but I still have not seen one like this with Zimbra to date?
I am not a programmer, but I am sure the skilled engineers there can come up with something similar.
As an IT geek, I have numerous .psts, as I like to keep every email, whether from staff, or monitoring systems. As I move to Zimbra, the only option I have now, is to give me a mega GB inbox. This is not practical.
I hope a Zimbra employee is reading this and can reply???
