Hi,

Thank you so much for writing to us.

Currently, we do not have any formal migration tool for Carbonio CE. As it is many of the users' concerns, our dev team is working to develop a complete tool for this purpose. But as you know developing, integrating, QA testing these tools are very time-consuming and rigorous hence it may take some time to become fully available for our users.

But we have tested that you can use imapsync method to migrate your email data from your Zimbra server to the carbonio server. Please read this blog article, it might be helpful for you.

Imapsync migration method

Please let us know your observation.

Thanks and regards,

Sharif

Hi sir

Thank you for your suggestion on imapsync, which is working in my case fine.

Please notify me when there is any update on the Migration tool.

Hi @bjornthor,

We are working on the documentation to include a migration section but it is still under development. For now, this article may be helpful:

Thanks and regards.

The problem with this is that hardlinks would not be preserved.

Zimbra uses a single copy storage method, when syncinc via imapsync inboxes could inflate a lot. Say a user had sent 50GB worth of email to two destinations on the server, that will become 100GB.
