Kerio Connect 7.1.1 on Mac OSX Server 10.6.4.



I have set the archive folder to be compressed on a monthly basis using the settings in Archiving and Backup > Archiving > Archive to local subfolder > Compress old archive folders.

I need to view some data from one of the compressed archive folders.

I have unzipped the compressed file for the month I need to view.

But the folder does not show in the Admin's webmail. The Admin account can see the current month's archive.

The documentation seems lacking in this area. The only thing I can find in the documentation is, "Use this option to compress the archive except for the current folder (the last folder created). However, it is not possible to browse through the compressed folders via email clients."

Am I missing something obvious?

What do I need to do to view the compressed archive via the Admin's webmail?

Thanks,

ft.

OK... what was confusing to me is the the server will re-compress the expanded folder at an undefined time.

For me it happened very soon after I expanded the folder. So, I was revisiting the admin account in webmail expecting to see the expanded folder, but it had been compressed/cleaned up. I had not revisited the expanded folder on the server to realize it was no longer there.

This is undocumented, so a heads-up to anyone in the same position.

Also, be aware that if you make any changes in the expanded archive (for example delete any messages), it appears those changes will be reflected in your 'new' archive' overwriting the original.

Regards,

ft.

Hi fishtech

Did you ever figure out a method to view the archived folder & search in webmail?

Thanks a million

Hmmm.... thinking back 18 months...

I think my problem was that I was un-zipping the archive, doing stuff and coming back, maybe the next day. By the time I came back the archive had been re-archived.

So there was not a problem. You just need to be aware that the archive will get re-archived at some point.

Hope this helps,

ft.

Thanks a million fishtech

Just to clarify the steps you did

1) Go to the location of the archive folders in Kerio
2) Unzip the specific month you are interested in
3) Log into Admin webmail & search?

Thanks a million
