    Default PLEASE HELP! Backing up or Saving Yahoo Messages.

    Zimbra Desktop 7.1.4 (build 11299)

    Two questions:

    1. Please guys, I need help badly. I installed Zimbra Desktop a few hours ago to be able to download all my emails from a free Yahoo account to my desktop. I want to save those messages on my computer to open them with other email clients like Outlook Express or at the very least be able to save them all as txt messages. I can see all the messages on the Zimbra application being downloaded, but I see no option anywhere to save all these messages on my computer as text or as an extension that Outlook Express would recognize. I want to keep a copy of the messages on the server too.

    Again, I need to back up thousands of important messages to my computer, which includes the "sent" folder's emails, to later open with Outlook Express or at the very least be able to save them as txt messages somewhere on my computer.

    I need to:

    - Save all Yahoo free email account messages saved locally so I can open them with Outlook Express 6
    - Keep a copy of the messages on the server.

    2. Does the "move" button on the Zimbra application "removes" my messages from the server after messages are "moved" let's say to a LOCAL folder I create with the Zimbra application?


    Thank you so much for any help you can provide.

    I figure out how to do it. God, this is awesome. Finally I have all mail backed up. Cheating wife emails for court :-)

    Guide for idiots:

    - Create a local folder with Zimbra Desktop.
    - Go to "preferences"
    - On the left pane click "Import/Export" under your Yahoo account's name.
    - Choose the folder to export
    - Download file to your your desktop
    - Uncompress the Winrar file at the location you saved it in
    - Go through each uncompressed folder and sort files by "type".
    - Highlight all the files that look like an envelope icon
    - Open Outlook Express
    - Drag selected files to whichever folder you want on Outlook Express (drag them to the right pane of the destination folder)

    All your Inbox files might be broken down into several folders. Sent folder was just one folder in my case.

    Done. Thanks for this great application, Zimbra team!
