    Default Account Permissions


    I tried searching for this but didn't have any luck. I apologize if it has already been discussed. Please forward me to the right thread if so!

    I have an OS X mail server running and am working on migrating to Zimbra. We have both machines authenticating via Active Directory. We don't know any user's passwords. This isn't a problem on the OS X side because we configured a user that can read everyone's mail.

    I use imapsync to move mail from one server to the other. I can specify the user to authenticate with on both sides. On the OS X side, specifying the user that can read all mailboxes works. On the Zimbra side, if I specify the admin user created at install, it does not.

    How can I create a user on the Zimbra side that can read everyone's mail?

    So you'd have like:

    imapsync --syncinternaldates --subscribed --host1 sourceserver --host2 destinationserver --user1 userAcctSrc --authuser1 adminUserSrc --password1 adminPassDest --user2 useracctondest --authuser2 adminUserDest --password2 adminPassDest --ssl1 --port1 num --ssl2 --port2

    If not already zimbraImapSSLServerEnabled should be set TRUE because AUTH=PLAIN requires TLS encoding, so an IMAPs or STARTTLS command on a normal IMAP connection.
