We have zcs-NETWORK-5.0.8_GA_2462.UBUNTU6. We have a variety of users installed, but we've just now moved into support Mac users.
Long term, these users will be using the web client, so I'm not worried about usability on that end...it's just the migration that's the bear.
For calendar and contacts, we plan to use the iSync connector, but the problem lies in their emails. They previously POP-ed their email into Entourage. We want all their emails on our Zimbra server.
I'm at a loss about how to efficiently get the email from Entourage to Zimbra.
So far, we've been doing the following:
- Creating an IMAP account to Zimbra
- Copying the emails from the POP account to the IMAP account
- Letting the IMAP sync the email to Zimbra
This actually works pretty well, until we came across some users who have a lot of folders. This just makes the process very tedious and makes that users system unusable while we do the migration (because we admins have to take it over for long periods of time).
So, at this point, I see that we have three potential solutions:
- Continue to use the IMAP method, and slog through each folder one at a time
- Discover that Entourage uses some sort of .pst file, and we can import that somehow
- Discover that iSync can indeed import email in addition to cal and contacts
Please, for the love of Pete, tell me that options 2 or 3 above are possible. Help.
I debated weather or not to post this here, or to the iSync forum. Since I don't think that the iSync connector is appropriate for migrating actual emails, this forum won out. If I'm wrong, and iSync connector can be used to move emails from Entourage to the zimbra server, please let me know! I would love to be wrong on that account.
Thanks in advance for any thoughts or assistance you guys can offer.
<addition/edit>I did search the forums/wiki, and the closest thing I could find to address this issue was this post, but it is specifically not focused on email migration, just cal/contacts</addition/edit>
