Zimbra shared mailbox toolkit for Administrators: Convenient and easy creation of mailbox shares and other stuff to get family mailbox like features

iCrowdNewswire - Sep 14, 2016

Zimbra shared mailbox toolkit for Administrators

Convenient and easy creation of mailbox shares and other stuff to get family mailbox like features.

Our goal is to develop a toolkit that consists of scripts, configuration examples and UI patches to bring back manageable mailbox sharing in Zimbra.

Our goal is to develop a toolkit that consists of scripts, configuration examples and UI patches to bring back manageable mailbox sharing in Zimbra.

We will develop:

  1. CLI command `shareAccount` that shares account A with account B and also adds the proper persona, configures Zimbra to store mail in the correct sent folder, and sets the correct FROM (persona) when replying.
  2. CLI command `createPersona` that adds persona’s based on the aliases of an account.
  3. CLI command `cleanupAccount` that removes all shares and persona’s from an account. Even if they where created outside these scripts. Useful to clean up after migration, upgrades or other issues where the Ajax webclient fails to load due to invalid shares. (This script will generate commands that you can run at discretion to  avoid loosing data.)
  4. A how-to page on how to enable X-Authenticated-User header. Allowing one to track what person was sending mail when using a shared account FROM header.
  5. An extension for the Admin UI for shareAccount and createPersona (deployment of this extension is optional, in case you only want to use the CLI tools, you do not need this extension)
  6. More goals may be added during the course of this campaign.

50% of the received funding will be used to support the Zeta Alliance operations, this way you also support our other work. See http://www.zetalliance.org/
