View Mail Function

Postby machantoshi » Fri Oct 01, 2021 7:09 am

Hi all, please help.

I am not an admin / IT person. My background was only in IS.
With the work email admin account, I've been asking IT guy that work as admin to disable "View Mail" for years, but he said its not possible.

Today I play around with it and found the "View Mail" in "Admin Extensions".
I undeployed it and managed to remove that function (Which I've previously asked but to no avail).

The problem is that I discover that you can as easily have more admins and those admins still have the basic function to add / remove users (but they also cannot view mail by default with this extra admin accounts).

Now I would like to return the Main Admin account to have the "View Mail" function for the company owner. I've searched around but cant find the zimlets / zip file.
Can somebody help me with this. Thank you.

The Zimlet is named com_zimbra_email.zip and should still be located on the mail server (you will need ssh access) located in /opt/zimbra/zimlets

You can follow the below link to learn how to deploy a zimlet.

Hi again Doug,

I managed to return view mail.
But it seems that all Administrator are now able to view them too, again.

What I want is for just the Main Admin to be able to view mail.
The rest are only for maintenance, create new account, delete account, etc.
Is it possible to do so?

I'm using 8.8.15-GA-3975.FOSS (Build 20201017004308).

Thank you for your kind help.

I do not believe so.
