    Default Migration from maildirs

    Anybody have tried migrate messages from other maildir or mailbox? I found that Zimbra uses ID to index the messages. I found no way to migrate the messages from the existings maildir and mailbox.

    There's a few ways you can handle that, a bunch of which are mentioned in this thread:

    Notably is one called "imapsync", which seems to pull data from the imap service on one host, and give it to the imap service on another host, rather than directly copying the mail files.

    Good luck,
    -Eric

    Eric is correct. If you have an IMAP interface we reccomend you use imapsync tool. If you have just raw mail files you can try zmlmtpinject which can load either sinlge mime message files or a directory of mime files.
