Hello,

Didi anybody have experience of migration from Amazon Workmail to Zimbra using imapsync?

AWS has functionality of migration_admin, user who has access to any mailbox described here:
https://docs.aws.amazon.com/workmail/la ... rview.html

When I just write source and destination mailbox users and their corresponding passwords everything works. But in this situation when I want to authenticate any user using "migration_admin" user. I get this error:
Host1 failure: Error login on [imap.mail.eu-west-1.awsapps.com] with user [user@example.com] auth [PLAIN]: 2 NO [AUTHENTICATIONFAILED] Authentication failed.
Exiting with return value 16 (EXIT_AUTHENTICATION_FAILURE)

This is part of imapsync command:
--host1 imap.mail.eu-west-1.awsapps.com --user1 user@example.com --authuser1 migration_admin@example.com --password1 "PASSWORD"

No imapsync works when sync two accounts but I want to authenticate any user in Workmail using one admin account, like in zimbra, I created such user but it doesn't work using --authuser1, admin user cant access or autheticate other users accounts. I thought someone knows other method to specify admin user
