    Default Mail Migration Out of Zimbra via IMAP

    Has anyone had any luck migrating mail OUT of zimbra and into another IMAP server using IMAP, specifying an admin user for authentication, but targeting a user's box?

    I've found lot of howto's on migrating mail into Zimbra from other IMAP servers using imapsync and stuff like that, but none going the other way.

    Should be no issues at all. imapsync just makes a connection via imap then does transfers. Won't make any difference if it's being synced from or to.

    IMAPsync would likely work, but I want to use a CSV file.


    Example:
    <<cut>>
    EmailAddress,UserName,Password
    NewMailbox@destinationmailserver.com,AdminUsername*targetmailbox-on-zimbra,adminpassword
    <<paste>>

    The IMAP implementations on Zimbra doesnt seem to like my syntax. I see in the logs, it can’t locate a mail box to match. ( I tried several variations)

    If I specify just the user's box and password it works fine:

    <<cut>>
    EmailAddress,UserName,Password
    NewMailbox@destinationmailserver.com,targetmailbox-on-zimbra,UsersPassword
    <<paste>>


    So my question ultimately is, what IMAP server does Zimbra actually use? Something custom? And what would the correct syntax be to Authenticate with an Admin account, BUT specify a mortal users' mail box as the Target?
