We've worked out nearly all the bugs with migrating to Zimbra, and we're about ready to call Sales and get some quotes to stand the live puppy up.
One outstanding issue: how do we migrate off retired users to a standardised file format that we can burn to a CD.
In the past, we've stripped off users' Exchange emails to a .pst file, burned the file to a disk, and handed it to the appropriate department head for whatever they want to do with it (it's our server, it's their data ... that model).
I've searched the Z forums quite a lot for this, and this seems to be lacking. I've done some fruitless googling on it also. Clearly, Z has a way to handle "turning off" a user in a quite elegant way. But ... how do I get that user off of my licence list, and how do I archive off that user's email to a file that is usable by a non-IT department head?
My first thought was that there MUST be some equivalent reverse procedure of .pst > Zimbra but, alas, so far, nothing shows up. I've seen the post in a couple of places, but the posts are old. Anything new here? Doesn't have to be .pst, just something I can make useful for the suits.
