[quote user="driftingprogrammer"]Yes i have also noticed, some mail which i only read in the preview pane has dissappeared now that i am looking for it after 4 months...why is that? is it not possible to retreive these lost mails.[/QUOTE]There is no feature in Zimbra that will delete email, the usual reason for mail 'disappearing' is that it's deleted by a user using a client that has deleted the email. Are you actually sure that the mail has been deleted and not that is just not visible? Have you tried a search in the Web UI, have you also tried setting the initial search (in the user Preferences tab) to the following:
in:inbox or is:unread

yes i tried searching using the zimbra web ui but, there was an important email with a initial password for a website, i remember specifically putting it in a folder called pending...i have been in the company for only 6 months so all my emails in the trash are also still there, i went through each and every mail for the past 6 months, spent the entire day doing that but no luck :(

You might try asking the Zimbra Admin interface to re-index the user's account, too. Usually is someone complains about search not working the index has gotten corrupted.
Also, there is actually a feature in Zimbra that will delete old mail. If you look in the Class of Service settings in the Advanced tab there's a section near the bottom for Email Retention Policy. There's three categories, one for Email in general, one for Trash, and one for Junk. Trash and Junk both default to 30 days (if someone doesn't empty them in that long, it'll delete things on its own from those two folders). The "Email" one is the one that might be biting you here *if* that's what's happening. That one defaults to 0 ("keep everything"). If it's set to something other than zero that might be what you're hitting.
Also, I once had a user using Apple Mail to connect to Zimbra via IMAP and for some reason his client started deleting every message that came in as it came in. He never figured out why, and it stopped doing it when he restarted his Mac.
