zimbra + outlook issue
i have installed at my firm zimbra collaborative suite 4.0.4
i have a common problem, all my users are using outlook as their mail client and in pop3. the problem comes when one of the users gets a new computer, the new outlook installation will see the account as a new one, even after i migrate the outlook data files from the old computer to the new 1, outlook will still attempt to download the whole mailbox again.
what i do is log onto the mail account, create a backup folder, and manually move mails from inbox to that new backup folder, each page displays 100 mails max, which of course means if a user has about 20k mails or so it's gonna be a tedious job doing this.
what i'm looking for is a workaround that i might not know of that would prevent outlook from downloading all the mailbox again (like a cache file i gotta backup or something) or a way for zimbra to automatically archive mails in the inbox weekly or daily or on whatever time basis i wish.
please any help guidance tips or links would help.
thanks in advance.
You would be far better using IMAP, the mail would the remain on the server, you could also use Zimbra Desktop instead of Outlook.
