    Default Copying Zimbra Across my LAN

    I am a new user of Zimbra desktop and am finding it excellent. I have it installed on my main machine and there it has some 40,000 emails downloaded.

    But I also have it on another machine on the same (home) LAN. And there, of course, it has that same 40,000 emails downloaded again.

    Seems like a bit of overkill perhaps or wasted effort or wasted disk space.

    Should I worry about it? Is there anything can be done about it such as a Zimbra 'sync across the lan' feature? Or does it just not really matter, leave it alone?

    There's no need to worry about it unless you have a shortage of disk space. If you use both copies of ZD then they will maintain the sync with the server and both of them will contain the same data. If you send a mail from machine 'a' it will siync with the server then when you next login to machine 'b' and use ZD it will sync and receive any updates you made on machine 'a' - does that make sense?

    I would suggest that it's prudent to use the backup feature of ZD to protect yourself against any unforeseen hardware problems or data loss.

    O.K., thanks for that. I'll just leave it as is. I've got no disk space problems...
