    What are people doing with My Personal Message Manger (MyPMM)?

    Staff seem to be getting a little confused as its another thing to login to.

    I asked if we could delegate all accounts to a single automatically so it was more like the old BGFL+ system, but apparently it can only be requested by each individual user.

    I suspect no one will actually ever login to MyPMM to release an email, which might not matter I suppose, kinda depends on how well it filters....

    So far I haven't figured out how it filters! I still get my Viagra emails daily but its blocking legitimate ones all the time. One step forward, 3 back

    We are moving to Zimbra on June 10th. I can see me referring to this forum for answers rather then the documentation Link2ICT send!

    I’m Just about to start uploading our users via CSV’s. We deleted all the ones set up by LInk2ict, we decided that we are going to stick with the format we have had for the last 10 years. What I can’t believe is that when importing users I can only import 3 columns of info. How the hell am I going to delete all the year elevens each year? I can’t see any way of separating them. Surely I don’t have to go though 1100 users and add a description so I can filter them.

    Also correct me if I’m wrong but I cannot see a way of bulk changing all the staff users’ quota

    I made L2ICT change all mine for me, added extra "description" info to make them more searchable.

    Ah, you also realised that you don't need to stick to the naming convention or 50Mb quota they want to stuff down our throats.

    www storage

    @People who have migrated.

    Did you have a website hosted on BGfL+? We do and we have been told by Link2ICT that the site will simply be copied over to a new server (accessible via same URL so absolute hyperlinks will still work) and we will get new FTP details. Could anyone confirm that this went smoothly for them?

    Thanks

    Our website was migrated from BGFL+ and went ok. FTP access is only available from within BGFL and seems a little slow to initiate connections, but worked without any problems. The "old" copy still exists on http://schoolname.plus.myvle.org and can you can still access the sina admin stuff at that address.

    Does anyone know how to download a list of contacts from with Zimbra to a CSV?
    We have quite a few office staff who want a new list and have far too many emails to move over to using everything on Zimbra and so would like to download the contacts of staff.

    goto http://moodle.myvle.org/lpsg/mod/glossary/view.php and search for contacts.csv

    also if you have your contacts in outlook you can export from there or if you use the Zimbra Outlook Connector it will sync your contacts

    Zimbra Outlook Connector

    WARNING:
    I have deployed the Zimbra Outlook Connector to several users and after you install it their old messages in outlook dissapear. They are not deleted as you can re-import the PST file. Only issue is that the autocomplete information is lost also. This is stored in the outlook.nk2 file. Zimbra create's a zimbra.nk2 file and will work from then onwards but I have yet to successfully import the old nk2 entries into the new.

    I have tried NK2View - View Outlook .NK2 AutoComplete Information and another utility to no avail.

    Otherwise the Zimbra outlook connector is excellent and will sync

    All mail folders
    Calendars
    Tasks
    Contacts

    Also Zimbra desktop is great as it allows simple offline access. Works so well I am even thinking of dumping outlook.
