Power Tip Tuesday – Get Your Data In & Out of Zimbra

Easily add files to your Zimbra account … and export too. Have address books/contacts in multiple accounts? You can export that data (from Google, Yahoo!, etc.) and import it into Zimbra – keep all of your info in one place! Likewise, you can export from Zimbra to keep backups and more.

Things you can import and export include:

  • Mail folders (in tar-gzipped .tgz format)
  • Calendars (in iCalendar .ics format)
  • Contacts (in .csv format)

To import or export:

  1. Click the Preferences tab.
  2. Click Import/Export.

To import, choose a file and click Import. Zimbra automatically detects the type of file being imported and displays appropriate import options.

To export:

  1. Select the type of item: Account (mail folder), Calendar or Contacts.
  2. Select the item from the Source menu.
  3. Click “Advanced settings” to specify:
  • What data types are included in the export
  • What date range to export
  • What filters to use, if any
  1. Click Export.

Here is a demo of importing and exporting in action.
