zmmailbox -z -m user@domain.com gms

You can also get this from zmprov, per server:

zmprov gqu `zmhostname`|awk {'print " "$3" "$2" "$1'}

Export/import an entire account

This is a particularly useful tool if you plan to script exporting and importing data. This can be used to export an account from one Zimbra ZCS platform, and imported to another. When exporting/importing large mailboxes, it is important to set the timeout to "0" (infinity):

You can export an entire mailbox with:

/opt/zimbra/bin/zmmailbox -z -m user@domain.com -t 0 getRestURL “//?fmt=tgz” > /tmp/account.tgz

Next transfer the tgz file to the destination ZCS platform via rsync, scp, sftp, etc. You’ll also need to create the account on the second server if the desired account doesn’t exist at your destination server yet.

Then import with:

/opt/zimbra/bin/zmmailbox -z -m user@domain.com -t 0 postRestURL “//?fmt=tgz&resolve=reset”  /tmp/account.tgz

The resolve= parameter has several options:

   “skip” ignores duplicates of old items, it’s also the default conflict-resolution.
   “modify” changes old items.
   “reset” will delete the old subfolder (or entire mailbox if /).
   “replace” will delete and re-enter them.

‘Reset’ will be a bit faster on an empty destination mailbox because it skips most dupe checks.

Import messages from an existing Maildir into the INBOX folder

echo addMessage /INBOX /path/to/Maildir/cur | /opt/zimbra/bin/zmmailbox -z -m foo@bar.com

Sharing

Sharing is combination of providing access & actually mapping a folder to the share.

Permissions (modifyFolderGrant)

zmmailbox -z -m share@domain.com mfg /Calendar account user@domain.com r

You could do any of the following for modifyFolderGrant [account {name}|group {name}|domain {name}|all|public|guest {email} [{password}]|key {email} [{accesskey}] {permissions|none}} followed by the permissions like: r, rw, rwix, rwixd, rwixda, none.

  • (r)ead - search, view overviews and items
  • (w)rite - edit drafts/contacts/notes, set flags
  • (i)nsert - copy/add to directory, create subfolders action
  • (x) - workflow actions, like accepting appointments
  • (d)elete - delete items and subfolders, set \Deleted flag
  • (a)dminister - delegate admin and change permissions

Mounting (createMountPoint)

Folder mount points for shared folders can be created on the command line to be accessed in the web interface. Currently, the mount points are not downloaded by the ZCO or iSync connectors and therefore must be designated manually in your 3rd party mail client, i.e., Outlook. They will show up as folders you can subscribe to in IMAP clients once you mount.

zmmailbox -z -m user@domain.com cm --view appointment -F# /sharedcal share@domain.com /Calendar

View types are appointment, contact, conversation, document, message, task, wiki.

Note When mounting a calendar to a user (--view appointment), the calendar will be added disabled or "unticked" to the user. To make sure the calendar is enabled when mounting, add -F# to the command line.

Options for mountpoints as described in the /opt/zimbra/docs/soap.txt [ZCS 8.0.6] :

  {folder-name}  = name of folder
  {parent-id}    = id of parent folder (absent for root folder)
  {flags}        = checked in UI (#), exclude free/(b)usy info, IMAP subscribed (*)
  {owner's-display-name} = primary email address of the owner of the linked-to resource
  {owner's-zimbra-id} = Zimbra id (guid) of the owner of the linked-to resource
  {id-of-shared-item} = item id of the linked-to resource in the remote mailbox
  {UUID-of-shared-item} = UUID of the linked-to resource in the remote mailbox
  {owner's-name-for-item} = The name presently used for the item by the owner
  {color}        = numeric; range 0-127; defaults to 0 if not present; client can display only 0-7
  {default-type} = (optional) default type for the folder; used by web client to decide which view to use;
                   possible values are the same as <SearchRequest>'s {types}:
                   conversation|message|contact|appointment|task|etc
  {reminder-enabled} = whether client should display reminder for appointments/tasks on this shared calendar

Sharing the entirety of an account

While you could manually do each & specify view, it will auto-detect if you leave it off, thus you can quickly share the entire account:

zmmailbox -z -m share@domain.com mfg / account user@domain.com rwixd
zmmailbox -z -m user@domain.com cm /shared share@domain.com /

Another method for sharing everything (just for the AJAX web client & not HTML client yet or other clients like IMAP): Mailboxes: Sharing vs. Relationships » Zimbra :: Blog

Walkthrough

In this example, the administrator wishes to designate a mount point to alice@domain.com for the shared marketing calendar located in the marketing@domain.com account for which she will have read/write permissions.

 mbox alice@domain.com> createMountpoint --view appointment /marketing-calendar marketing@domain.com /Calendar
 2342

The following command line options will perform the equivalent action to a user "albert" sharing their Calendar to another user "brian":

zmmailbox -z -m albert@example.com mfg -i /Calendar account brian@example.com none      "Permission: None"
zmmailbox -z -m albert@example.com mfg -i /Calendar account brian@example.com r         "Permission: Viewer"
zmmailbox -z -m albert@example.com mfg -i /Calendar account brian@example.com rwidx     "Permission: Manager"

Note that the last option uses "rwidx", not just "rw".

Inheriting Rights

In 5.0.x we removed the -i "Inherit" flag from folder grants and subfolder permission inheritance is now always TRUE.

To prevent inheriting you must share the parent folder, then unshare each of the children by setting an explicit ACL on each of them.

If you attempt to reshare the subfolders following this, you may need to clear the -i flag. See Clearing the "don't inherit grants from parent folder"(i) flag for more information on how to clear this flag.


Reasoning:

Back when we had the -i inherited/not-inherited bit on the grant rather than on the folder, there was no way to tell whether you could effectively create a subfolder within a shared folder. In order for subfolder creation to be really workable, you need insert rights on the parent folder (to create the subfolder) and read rights on the created folder (to see the subfolder you just created). But under the old regime, the simple set of effective perms on the parent folder wasn't enough. You could tell that you had read rights *on the parent* but not whether those read rights would carry over to the child folder. So we added the calculated "c" right that meant that you could create a subfolder and then see it.

Under the new ACL model, this isn't a problem. Folders inherit the full ACL, so if you have read and insert on the parent folder then you're going to have read and insert on any subfolder you create. Now the client can just look for "r" and "i" in the shared parent's perms. If they're present, they can create a visible subfolder.

Which means that we could get rid of the calculated "c" right for 6.0.

Scripting

Using -f For File Input

Let's say you want to create thousands of folders for testing purposes. Here's a walk through on doing that.

First, create a root folder:

zmmailbox -z -m USER@DOMAIN cf -V message /Large-Share

Now, create a file we'll use for zmmailbox's input.

for i in {1..5300}; do echo "cf -V message /Large-Share/Folder$i" >> /tmp/create-folder ; done

This will give us something like:

cf -V message /Large-Share/Folder1
cf -V message /Large-Share/Folder2
cf -V message /Large-Share/Folder3
cf -V message /Large-Share/Folder4
cf -V message /Large-Share/Folder5
cf -V message /Large-Share/Folder6
cf -V message /Large-Share/Folder7
cf -V message /Large-Share/Folder8
cf -V message /Large-Share/Folder9
cf -V message /Large-Share/Folder10

...

cf -V message /Large-Share/Folder5291
cf -V message /Large-Share/Folder5292
cf -V message /Large-Share/Folder5293
cf -V message /Large-Share/Folder5294
cf -V message /Large-Share/Folder5295
cf -V message /Large-Share/Folder5296
cf -V message /Large-Share/Folder5297
cf -V message /Large-Share/Folder5298
cf -V message /Large-Share/Folder5299
cf -V message /Large-Share/Folder5300

Now we can feed in the commands with zmmailbox with the -f option.

zmmailbox -z -m USER@DOMAIN -f /tmp/create-folder

The method above is A LOT faster than using a for loop against the zmmailbox command itself. Invoking separate zmmailbox commands causes undue delay. Example, where one does:

for i in {1..5300}; do zmmailbox -z -m USER@DOMAIN cf -V message /Large-Share/Folder$i ; done
