Zimbra: Manipulate mailbox from CLI 150 150 Roderick Derks

The command that manipulates mailboxes from CLI is zmmailbox. The following features are very usable:

 

  • Place user account into maintenance mode. This will prevent delivery of new mail messages until we finish with the backup procedure:

    zmprov ma <user> zimbraAccountStatus maintenance 
  • Archive user's mailbox in tar.gz format:

    zmmailbox -z -m <user> getRestURL "//?fmt=tgz" > /tmp/<user>.tar.gz 
  • Empty Inbox folder:

    zmmailbox -z -m <sgros> ef /Inbox 
  • Restore user's mailbox from tar.gz format:

    zmmailbox -z -m <user> postRestURL "//?fmt=tgz&resolve=reset" /tmp/<user>.tgz
  • Put user's account into active mode:

    zmprov ma <user> zimbraAccountStatus active
