Zimbra: Away Message, Password Change, Back-up

Here are a few tips for your Zimbra account:

Create an Away/Vacation Message:

In case you will be away for the holidays and you want to create an away message, check out this post for directions:

Password Change:

Go to the following link: and select “PW Change” on the left side of the screen. Select “Update and change your current password,” and follow the directions.

Backing up Email/Calendar/Address Book:

Some people in our district have asked about backing up email. The file created by Zimbra when backing up information will be readable only by importing the file into Zimbra, or Zimbra Desktop. This means that you won’t be able to read the information if you open the file on your computer. The biggest reason for backing up the information would be leaving the district.  If you are still interested in backing up the data, follow these directions.

To backup email, select “Preferences,” then “Import/Export,” then under “Export” you can select “All Folders,” then choose the folders you would like to backup, then select “OK.” From the “Import/Export” screen, you may also backup your Address Book, Calendar, Tasks and Briefcase. Select the box next to “Advanced Settings,” and select the boxes next to the items that you would like and select “Export.”

The file(s) will be downloaded in a zip file in your Downloads folder.
