Migration from Mdaemon 6.8.5
Zimbra freakin rocks!! Nice job on everything, the users that are helping me test it out are totally blown away.
I am definitely ready to switch from Mdaemon (which is great but not open source!) and I'm wondering if anyone knows of a good how-to.
I have read about imapsync, and I know that I have to export my account data, but I have custom mailing lists created using ODBC mySQL queries of our custom built online contact management system. Is there any way to make dynamic mailing lists in zimbra, using this information from the db?
Zimbra SERIOUSLY needs mailing list tools, not just distribution lists
Thanks for the quick response, I will keep all of that in mind while migrating the user accounts. The real deal-breaker for me will be the mailing lists though, I'm not sure I can afford to move away from MDaemon until Zimbra has some serious mailing list capability. I am sure that I am not the only person who would REALLY like to see this in Zimbra.
I am willing to try setting up mailman on another mail server but this will require the use of another email for the list, and I have spent the last few years trying to teach everyone how to use the existing one. Re-training these guys is a nightmare that I'd rather not have come true.
Does anyone know whether or not this is a feature they are looking to add in a serious way? I looked at their bugzilla to try and vote for this feature, but let's just say it was a little confusing. Actually I had no freakin idea what to do or how to browse the bugs to find a suitable "feature" to vote on.
I am willing to pull my weight on this one, I'm quite a capable programmer and if pointed in the right direction I am sure I could hack something together... it would just be SO much easier/safer/popular if this could be managed and work alongside zimbra.
