    Smile Zimbra Desktop POP Account Issue


    I have 2 accounts configued on Zimbra Desktop 1st one to connect Zimbra and 2nd one to connect POP mails from another server.

    I have configured POP account on Zimba Desktop and downloading mails from server and dont want to keep mails on server after downloading.

    Remove from server option is there but not able to select check box....

    Do i need to do something extra for this...

    Please suggest....

    We have this intentionally disabled/grayed out till there's a simpler backup method to export MIME (the message content) & Metadata (folder location/read status/tags/flags/etc) with the GUI. It can be quite frighting how many people don't understand that if they don't maintain their personal machines/or worse loose a laptop their mail is then gone. We realize that the technical minded people out there understand - but we'd rather not run the risk. Perhaps a 2nd 'are you sure?' prompt will be implemented before the backup is so we can turn that feature back on - as I do realize there are legitimate reasons & people out there with limited quotas.

    Backup solutions for now include:

    Copying the entire zdesktop/store/ folder at the minimum & really should grab the entire zdesktop/ folder + keep a copy of that version's installer handy.

    Or you can grab all items by localhost:7633/service/home/~/?fmt=zip&query=is:anywhere (replace ~ with if you have more than one account)
