    Will an externalImport restore deleted items too?

    Hello,

    I'm am worriying that an external import will restore all deleted items in the server too, can you please confirm this? I used a trial installation with a retention policy of 20 days on the server from which I'm trying to move my data (and upgrade zimbra version) however I would dislike if it would restore everything.

    Thank You,
    Paul.

    Hi Paul,

    as far as I know, deleted items should not be imported with a extrarnal restore, but I must point out that the items in the Trash folder are not considered deleted items by zxbackup module.

    Hello Davide,

    the behaviour you describe is correct, as emails moved to the Trash are not considered as "deleted" neither by Zimbra nor by ZeXtras Backup. Deleted items are the ones that are completely removed from the mailbox, such as:
    - Items deleted when emptying the Trash
    - Items deleted when emptying a folder
    - Items downloaded through the POP3 protocol (unless the "Keep a copy of the messages" option is set on your client)


    Have a nice day,
