Force Drafts folder syncing editing ~/zdesktop/conf/datasource.xml file

Postby versatil » Fri Jan 09, 2015 3:09 am


Over four years we know that Sync Drafts folder for known IMAP services is not possible.

But googling the Web we can find a fix for anyone who’s been wondering why zimbra desktop is not syncing the sent mails across all their devices. In few words : add lines like this at the bottom of your home ~/zdesktop/conf/datasource.xml file

<service name="" saveToSent="true">
<folder remotePath="INBOX" localPath="/Inbox" sync="true"/>
<folder remotePath="INBOX/Sent" localPath="/Sent" sync="true"/>
<folder remotePath="INBOX/Trash" localPath="/Trash" sync="true"/>
<folder remotePath="INBOX/Junk" localPath="/Junk" sync="true"/>
<folder remotePath="INBOX/Drafts" localPath="/Drafts" sync="true"/>

Well, is it possible to apply that fix in order to force syncing the Drafts folder?

Thanks for reply... and happy new year!
