• Hi@all,

    I have connected OL 2016 with the current KOLE to the current UCS/Kopano I have created a new OL profile and selected “All” when asked how many mails should be available offline.

    Then I get a warning that the mailbox would be too big and offline=6 months.
    When I select the shared folders (top level) in KOLE I also get a message that there are too many.

    But since all our correspondence (customers, suppliers, …) is stored in the shared folders, I need all folders and mails here.
    Can I remove the limitation in KOLE somehow?
    In this case I cannot use Desk/Web - App because the ERP/DMS needs Outlook.

    Are there perhaps Outlook users who have the same folder structure (mailbox + storage in shared folders) or have an idea to solve the problem differently?

    with best

    Hi @pixel,

    In Z-Push 2.6.0 there will be a config parameter to disable this check. See https://jira.z-hub.io/browse/ZP-1521 and https://wiki.z-hub.io/display/ZP/Hidden+configuration+parameters for more information. We plan to release it in September.

    If you want an immediate solution in [z-push-location]/backend/kopano/kopano.php search for $storesize = isset($storeProps[PR_MESSAGE_SIZE_EXTENDED]) ? $storeProps[PR_MESSAGE_SIZE_EXTENDED] : 0; and replace it with $storesize = 0; (it should be around line 1730).

  • ok, I’ll look into it.

    What I would like to know is how other users of Kopano/Outlook solve this problem.

    The structure:

    • One mailbox per user
    • Mail storage for all in the shared folders

    should not be exotic and in the shared folders you always need all mails if you are looking for an old correspondence with a customer.

    When using Kopano/KOLE/OL this means that I always have all mails in the shared folder on all workstations synchronously.

    Is this really the solution?


  • It would be much better if KOLE would use ActiveSync only for the groupware functionalities (tasks, calendar, notes, reminders etc.) and integrate the mails internally via IMAP.

    Then the system would also be faster

    Hi @pixel,

    the name of the extension is actually KOE, not KOLE.

    It should be possible to add another email in the account settings which could be an IMAP account. Did you try that?

    Manfred


  • Yeah, we tried that already. But it is not possible to move mails from the ActiveSync account to IMAP. At least I seem to remember.

    Is it possible to set in KOE that only calendar, address book, tasks … are synchronized?

    Then I could use IMAP exclusively for mails.


  • IMHO in KOE the option “Syncronize groupware data only” would be a good solution. Then mails could be connected exclusively via IMAP and you would have a high-performance OL<->KOPANO.

    Or do I see it wrong?


  • @pixel

    We do that on all customers through email archiving like mailstore server (which we integrate in kopano client through intranet plugin and in outlook with its own plugin) - as i think you should in general keep the mailbox sizes as small as possible (Outlook limits to 50GB per ost file e.g.)

    Yes, moving emails between accounts is not possible in Outlook.

    That is not possible.

    I’m not an Outlook dev expert, but I think it would be quite complicated to implement. Try contacting Kopano sales or support regarding this.

    I don’t really understand the explanation. Can you explain it to me in more detail?

    ok, I contacted support.

    In spite of everything I am not clear how to use Kopano <-> KOE <-> OL in a meaningful way?
    The structure of the mails described by me should be nothing special
