    ... in providing a reason why one might not want "all" mail on the server.

    I agree entirely with the logic of Bill's statement, but I have clients running Outlook whose profiles crash frequently when their mailboxes exceed 20GB. The "Outlook" way to resolve this, is to use its "auto-archive" feature. I should mention here, that there is no stability issue when using the zimbra web interface on mailboxes that size (search is still super quick). The problem is just outlook and I wish I could get them off it, but it isn't technically feasible at this time.
    Current specs:
    8.x NE + OSS KVM guests and Physical servers Ubuntu 12.04, RHEL 5 + 6 .
    on Dell server hardware.

    Previously: ZCS OSS and NE 7, 6, 5, 4, 3 variously on physical and virtual

    A long work-around for dealing with zimbra Desktop (which is heading to E-O-L)

    1) Import all mail onto server.
    2) Use import/export in web-mail preferences, to export a subset of the data.
    3) Then import that data into ZDesktop (it will appear as a separate folder tree)
    4) Then delete the exported data from the server via a mailbox search to find the same data exported in (2).


    ... another option would be to do (1) above, then use POP3 to pull all mail down to a mail client like thunderbird, to get the data back off the server.

    (both work-arounds are tedious)
