    Default [SOLVED] Thunderbird Local Folders to Zimbra


    I can't find a proper way to move local folders in Thunderbird to Zimbra. I've tried to move the local folders to the old server(IMAP) and then use IMAPSYNC but the complete structure of the local folders don't seem to copy over. Only the top level copies over. Is there some kind of script like imapsync that deals directly with Thunderbird local folders?

    If you're using imapsync to migrate, be sure to throw it the following options:

    imapsync --nosyncacls --subscribe --syncinternaldates
    This is what I used to migrate my mail. As for any facility to import directly from Tbird local folders? Most likely you're going to have to copy those by hand.

    Now, I don't know if you're using the same terminology here, but the Thunderbird Local Folders are local to your computer, and will not be picked up by IMAP. IMAP is for email stored on the server. The email in the Local Folders is no longer on the server (unless you copied it instead of moving), and imapsync will not be able to copy that data over.

    Thanks for the reply. I solved my problem by adding the Zimbra server in Thunderbird and dragging the local folders to the Zimbra server and that worked.
