Problem

Accidentally deleted spam, ham and quarantine accounts from the server and no backup is not available.

Solution

Steps to re-create existing spam,ham and quarantine accounts
  • Get the previous account names from the global configuration:
su - zimbra
zmprov -l gacf zimbraAmavisQuarantineAccount zimbraSpamIsSpamAccount zimbraSpamIsNotSpamAccount
  • Now recreate the account using the name obtained in the previous step:

Spam Account:

zmprov ca <spam-account@example.com> <PASSWORD> amavisBypassSpamChecks TRUE zimbraAttachmentsIndexingEnabled FALSE zimbraIsSystemAccount TRUE zimbraIsSystemResource TRUE zimbraHideInGal TRUE description 'System account for spam training.'

Ham Account:

zmprov ca <ham-account@example.com> <PASSWORD> amavisBypassSpamChecks TRUE zimbraAttachmentsIndexingEnabled FALSE zimbraIsSystemAccount TRUE zimbraIsSystemResource TRUE zimbraHideInGal TRUE description 'System account for Non-Spam (Ham) training.'

Quarantine Account:

zmprov ca <virus-quarantine-account@example.com> <PASSWORD> amavisBypassSpamChecks TRUE zimbraAttachmentsIndexingEnabled FALSE zimbraIsSystemAccount TRUE zimbraIsSystemResource TRUE zimbraHideInGal TRUE zimbraMailMessageLifetime 30d description 'System account for Anti-virus quarantine.'


Steps to create new spam, ham and quarantine accounts

The above recreates existing accounts. If there is a need to recreate accounts with a random name, like spam.<random number> and ham.<random number>, follow these steps.

  • First create spam, ham and quarantine accounts with random passwords and add a random string in account name.:
zmprov ca spam.`strings /dev/urandom | tr -dc _A-Z-a-z-0-9 | head -c10`@example.com "`strings /dev/urandom | tr -dc _A-Z-a-z-0-9 | head -c10`" amavisBypassSpamChecks TRUE zimbraAttachmentsIndexingEnabled FALSE zimbraIsSystemAccount TRUE zimbraIsSystemResource TRUE zimbraHideInGal TRUE description 'System account for spam training.'

zmprov ca ham.`strings /dev/urandom | tr -dc _A-Z-a-z-0-9 | head -c10`@example.com "`strings /dev/urandom | tr -dc _A-Z-a-z-0-9 | head -c10`" amavisBypassSpamChecks TRUE zimbraAttachmentsIndexingEnabled FALSE zimbraIsSystemAccount TRUE zimbraIsSystemResource TRUE zimbraHideInGal TRUE description 'System account for Non-Spam (Ham) training.'

zmprov ca virus-quarantine.`strings /dev/urandom | tr -dc _A-Z-a-z-0-9 | head -c10`@example.com "`strings /dev/urandom | tr -dc _A-Z-a-z-0-9 | head -c10`" amavisBypassSpamChecks TRUE zimbraAttachmentsIndexingEnabled FALSE zimbraIsSystemAccount: TRUE zimbraIsSystemResource TRUE zimbraHideInGal TRUE zimbraMailMessageLifetime 30d description 'System account for Anti-virus quarantine.'
  • Get the new account names:
zmprov -l gaa | egrep -i 'spam|ham|virus-quarantine'
  • Now add these to the global configuration, and restart for the changes to take effect:
zmprov mcf zimbraSpamIsSpamAccount <spam-account@example.com> zimbraSpamIsNotSpamAccount <ham-account@example.com> zimbraAmavisQuarantineAccount <virus-quarantine-account@example.com>

zmcontrol restart

Note: Replace example.com with the actual primary domain name.
