[SOLVED] server to server sync using mapi


does anyone know an existing program/script to sync from server A to server B all contacts, calendar items, email items etc? maybe also on a per-user basis?
It seems to me, that using the python3-mapi library it should be possible. However, my google-fu was unable to locate anything like it.

Although the above is meant to be a general question, my specific use-case might also be of interest: I want to migrate a zarafa to kopano, but just upgrading the database would cause quite some side effects. Therefore my idea was to copy the items using MAPI. However, this raises the following questions:

  1. Is there preexisting software? (=> don’t reinvent the wheel)
  2. can python3-mapi shipped with kopano talk to a ZCP 7.2 server?
  3. if only the following data is copied: items (calendar-items, email-items, contact-items), what is missing?

Thanks for any help!


Hi @qyanu ,

you can use kopano-backup for this.

Hi @fbartels,

thanks for the pointer. the solution with kopano-backup backup works fine!
