how to deal with big (zarafa) mailboxes and Outlook / KOE

  • hello,

    so far we use a zarafa server with webaccess and mapi for Outlook. Migration to kopano for the webaccess users seems no problem but what is the best way for the outlook users?

    So far I understood KOE will sync the whole (zarafa-account eventually several GB) to the local client/computer. Furthermore there are shared accounts as well which should be connected and handled.
    So the data will be multiplied (by KOE on the clients). The huge accounts are needed because old emails are often used, so they cannot be deleted.

    So what is the idea/solution/tip to handle such huge accounts with KOE ?

    Any input is welcome, thanks.

    regards, Adrian

    Basically the size is not a problem for KOE/ActiveSync. the initial sync may take a while, but you (hopefully) will only do it once. What manifested itself as a bigger problem are many clients trying to sync the same very busy mailbox.

    In general I would rather recommend to take a look at WebApp/DeskApp if you want to work with lots of shared folders. KOE is rather meant for keeping you own store in sync, plus adding occasionally used stores into the mix.

  • Hello Felix,

    thank you for the explanation.
    I agree with using WebApp/DeskApp but unfortunately most of our users prefer outlook and other internal systems depend on outlook.

    Would it be possible with KOE to connect:
    a) the own stores (hopefully cleaned and reduced) with active sync and
    b) connect the shared mail stores with imap to outlook?
    Furthermore would it be possible in Outlook to drag and drop mail from a) to b) and vice versa?
    I’m asking this because some of the older PC may get a space problem on the disks.

    Thank you, regards: Adrian

    Hi @liagam ,

    while its of course no problem to add additional accounts via imap, Outlook unfortunately won’t allow you to move items in and out of activesync accounts.

  • Hello Felix
    thank you for clarification,

    Regards Adrian
