    Question extract/dump a point-in-time Zextras backup to ONLY maildir/text format?

    we have a client requirement to provide archival, text-based dumps of an entire Zimbra server's mail contents, at a given timestamp.

    the dump must be in maildir format, in a simple folder hierarchy

    Code:
    	server
    		domainAA
    			accountA
    				folder1
    					message1
    					message2
    					...
    				...
    			accountB
    			...
    		domainBB
    		...
    does the capability exist in ZxBackup, or otherwise in Zextras, to extract & dump, in maildir format, a backup from a given timestamp?

    Hello pgn!

    Such feature does not exist in ZeXtras Suite, and while all items' history is stored in the backup there is no automated way to extract it and convert it to another format.

    The only way ZxBackup could help you would be by using the Restore on New Account feature to restore a mailbox as it was at a given timestamp and then export the content to the maildir format with a script or third party tool. You could also write a script that parses the content of ZxBackup file and stores the items in maildir format, but this requires a bit of investigation and programming skills...

    Have a nice day,
