    Rangga, welcome to the forums

    Note: this was originally posted in a thunderbird thread:
    -so you are currently using thunderbird for a front end pop client?

    Setup the new zimbra server
    Make a new account in say Thunderbird (or other imap&pop client) and connect via imap to the zcs server.
    copy the folders you want to the zimbra account
    -in outlook 2003 it's simply right click the folder> 'copy to' (you would select the inbox on the zcs account) etc.
    -sometimes in thunderbird you need to first make the folder on the zcs account-highlight the pop mail you already have-rightclick> copy to (thunderbird sometimes doesn't let you click 'copy to' on folders that we're originally pop)

    In short try this first: under thunderbird, create an imap account that leads to your user's zimbra account. Then just attempt to drag/drop e-mails from local account (old pop) to zimbra imap account.

    and address book use ldap.
    You said your already using ldap for address book-well that's easy: after your up and running, under the GAL section in the admin console (port 7071) have it use the same ldap server.

    No, but it can handle ldif files, so you can export the ldap address book to ldif using ldapsearch or slapcat (assuming its hosted on openldap) and then import it form there.
