Where oh where are the email stores?

Postby IT Dept » Thu Aug 06, 2015 5:25 pm

When manually going to check my emails stores to compare backup with working copy, neither the working copy of Zimbra 8 nor the backups have files in opt/zimbra/store. Unless i can't see them for some reason but LS only brings up INCOMING and that's empty. Are emails stored somewhere else now, I have read the docs and all searching online says they are still stored in there. I didn't change the store directory and i setup the server. Any thoughts?

Within my installation the store directory has another subdirectory named "0"

Full path: /opt/zimbra/store/0

In this directory the files from each user is stored in subdirectories named with a number.

If you want to get your Number (mailbox id) use following command as user zimbra

zmprov getMailboxInfo user@domain.tld

The answer of this command is the MailboxID and the uses quota

Maybe this link will help you to find your email store: https://wiki.zimbra.com/wiki/Account_mailbox_database_structure
