I have:

As you can see kopano-utils is missing. I don’t know why but I need it because of the migration-pst which I want to use.

Can someone help me.


Hi @hispeed ,

what does kopano-migration-pst have to do with kopano-utils? These are two packages that are independent of each other.

Moin Hispeed,
kopano-migration-pst, kopano-migration-imap, kopano-utils are as indipendent packages all found on kopano.io download package section community or supported edition. In your case most likely here (k4s is on debian 9): https://download.kopano.io/community/core:/core-
It looks like apt-get install kopano-server-packages does not include these packages by default. I will add them into next release of k4s in case it is no coincidence with your nickname in other forums and you are still using synology migrating from z4h to k4s. -TosoBoso

Hi Tosoboso (me confused and surprised, “ja” we know each other from the synology-forum),

What happened here ;=)… yes I’m using still your Zarafa4h but I switch now to Ubuntu and Kopano Community version. I got it all running and up with certificate and everyhting. Now I need to migrate the emails from your z4h to Kopano. There are a few other reasons why I decided to use a dedicated virtual machine for this.
Your Synology version is of course still nice.

Back to my question. Fbartels and you are etlling me that this kopano-migration-pst is an independent package and is included but not by default with the installation of Kopano Core?
How I can I install kopano-migration-pst ?

This is how I made the package for the core:

// Beginn der Core Installation auf Ubuntu von Kopano
mkdir -p /home/kopano/amd64
cd /home/kopano/amd64
wget https://download.kopano.io/community/core:/core-
tar xfvz core-
cd core-
cd /home/kopano
apt-ftparchive packages amd64/ > amd64/Packages
echo "deb [trusted=yes] file:/home/kopano amd64/" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/kopano-com.list
apt update
apt install kopano-server-packages

That’s what I get at the moment…

root@svgwma-kopa-02:/home/kopano# kopano-migration-pst

Command 'kopano-migration-pst' not found, but can be installed with:

apt install kopano-utils


apt install kopano-migration-pst?

The reference to kopano-utils probably comes from the Kopano packages in the Ubuntu repository.

When I do that it shows me: package not found:

root@svgwma-kopa-02:/home/kopano# apt install kopano-migration-pst
Paketlisten werden gelesen... Fertig
Abhängigkeitsbaum wird aufgebaut.
Statusinformationen werden eingelesen.... Fertig
E: Paket kopano-migration-pst kann nicht gefunden werden.

Then I can only guess that you have since the original installation removed the custom repo that you have created above. The package is part of the current archive (and I am pretty sure it was back then as well)

Description: Utility to import PST files
 kopano-migration-pst is a utility to import PST files into Kopano. As PST
 files are basically MAPI dumps, and Kopano also uses MAPI internally, there
 should be practically no data loss, even including calendar data.


I got it working ;=). Learned a lot and I found out my mistake. Yes it was included.

I also imported contacts. It worked well but I have some strange information in one field and also a “Umlaute” problem.

This is how it looks now in the Webapp.

Question 1: Why it has problem with ü and probably with ä ?`

Question 2: Zusätzliche Informationen is containing some fonts information and strange other numbers and letters…
