imapsync special character in folder name

Postby tom2810 » Mon Oct 16, 2017 10:08 am

Hi all,
as I told you we going to migrate from Zarafa to Zimbra.
Now we got following issue.

A lot of our users have folder names with special characters lik "/". eg (Test/ new customer)

Zimbra does not allow those characters. The issue now, I am not able to migrate those folders.
Host1 Folder Testnewcustomer: Could not select: 299 NO SELECT error getting mails in folder.

Does anyone know how can I fix that? We want to avoid that users need to change every folder.

I think you should use "--regextrans2". Here is an example:

--regextrans2 's/[^ +,\-.0-9:=\ at A-Z_a-z~&]//g' \

Best regards.
