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:
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:
Obviously replace that string with your CoS ID.

argh, I havent had time to look at zimbra properly yet. Have you made all the alias's to your old BGFL+ accounts yet?

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.

Good question Chr1S!
So, i asked a question for a second time last tuesday....
I've just recieved an email pointing me here... http://moodle.myvle.org/lpsg/mod/glo...entry&hook=371
Am I correct in thinking that we are unable to start migrating our bgfl email to our Zimbra accounts at the moment?
I'm sure it didnt say that before! Nice to finally have an answer...i think..

It didnt, amazing how poor this migration is being managed!!

Yup, that'll mean we'll have to edit each member.... *sigh*

Eh? Which is true then....the fact we have to get them to set up IMAP or what the PDF says and that they have already enabled it? Pah...

Hmmm, my migration was set for 3pm today, not heard a thing, no calls back and no idea if they are doing anything at all! How can I play anything when no one gives you any information!!

Does anyone know the format of the parked BGFL+ domain after the migration?
Answering my own questions now -
