    Zimbra

    So with L2ICT being as open as a closed door when giving us info and their forum is dead I thought this could be a good place for us to share our tips, ideas and problems with Zimbra.

    So I will start -

    How do you apply a filter in admin to just see staff or students and not a huge muddle of all of them?

    What are the POP/SMTP/IMAP servers?

    I think this will depend on how your accounts are defined as staff or student. E.g. if the 'Description' field is completed, you can search like this:

    (description=*Staff*)
    For all accounts where the Description field contains 'Staff'.

    If it's by Class of Service - first find the ID of the CoS by clicking it on the left. Its ID should appear in the blue bar next to the name. Then search like this:

    (zimbraCosId=822936b9-a808-4df0-aab6-8a1a9a0bb3be)
    Obviously replace that string with your CoS ID.

    L2ICT have set up the accounts so probably no description added what so ever, great!

    Oh and a heads up, if you are migrating your bgfl email to zimbra via IMAP, you have to specifically request that your old domain is IMAP enabled. This is in tiny print on the migration document.

    Does anyone know the format of the parked BGFL+ domain after the migration?

    Answering my own questions now -

    domain.plus.myvle.org

    why the hell cant they put all this info in the FAQ?
