Hello everybody !

I would like to have advices about how to copy a mail or contact folder from a KMS user to another, I don't think a cp -R is a good idea because of Kerio indexes and MAPI STORE folder that will be duplicated, can you tell me the safest way to do this with terminal on a macosx ?

Thanks everybody

The safest, Kerio-friendly way, would be to not use the terminal.

Have either user share their source or destination folder to the other user. The user who subscribes to the shared folder can use the 'move or copy all' function in webmail to transition the files. I like this method the best as the users can do it themselves.

If you have to transition a huge number of folders from user A to user B, one trick is to delete the user from the Kerio console. When you delete user A, there's an option to move all their content to another Kerio user. After some time, user B would see a new folder containing all the content from user A. If user A is still an employee, just add them back to the user list to start anew. Keep in mind user A may lose all their settings, rules, etc.

I've used the terminal to move mail only between non-MAPI users. When I do that, I follow the copy with renaming the index.fld to index.bad on the destination. I took one look at the MAPI folders you mention and decided not to mess with them via the terminal. However, I'd be surprised if someone else here hasn't tackled this at some point.

Good luck,
Lyle Millander
