    Default Moving an account to a new domain on a new server

    I have an account that I would like to move to a new domain on a different server also running Zimbra.

    I know that I can imapsync the messages to the new server. I can also export the contacts to a file and import them on the new machine. Additionally, I will not need to migrate calendar items.

    It would be nice if I could keep the tags on the messages.

    Is there anyway of accomplishing this?

    Long ago, it worked fine but they ended up as $Label1, 2, 3, etc but they we're still assigned to the appropriate messages.
    More recently it's worked smoother:

    Tags on contacts get exposed as CATEGORIES in the contacts' vCard export.
