where is mail stored in the file system and how to back it up?
« on: January 26, 2016, 05:07:52 am »
I've got an old install of Zentyal 4.0 that is taking up 800gb of space (I have no idea).

I want to trash the whole install, but I want to extract and backup the mail there just in case we need it some day.  I don't need to actually sort it or restore it: I just want to tar it up and keep it somewhere.  What I don't want to do is keep burning 800gb of storage on whatever the hell Zentyal decided to use 800gb for.

Anyway, I check the sticky at the top of the page and that didn't help at all.  I think I was using OpenChange in 4.0, but I'm not really sure as it has been a while now.

Where can I find the email and how can I easily back it up?

... have you looked in /var/vmail/[your mail domain]?

Sometimes the Samba shares "eat" a lot => /home/samba/[whatever]

Kind Regards
