I previously used Zimbra, but now am switching to Outlook 2007. How do I

export my email and email folders to Outlook? My email account associated

with Zimbra will be deactivated in a short time

I do:

Incoming/IMAP host/server: zimbra.snc.edu, TLS security, port 143

Outgoing/SMTP host/server: smtprelay.snc.edu, SSL security, port 465

Set up Outlook for IMAP access (use the "Incoming" information) to the

Zimbra. Synchronize your folders. Now you should be able to just "drag and

drop" email from the Zimbra account folders to local folders in Outlook. Be

sure you use the local folders, so they will be in the message store locally

on the computer. Once you are satisfied that your Zimbra account email is

available locally in MS Outlook, you can delete the Zimbra account from

Outlook.

The important point to grasp is that the IMAP account folders, which will

appear after you set up the account in Outlook, are not local, and will

disappear as soon as you remove the account from Outlook. So you will need

to copy their contents to local folders, which will not be in the folder

tree under the account.

Create an IMAP account in Outlook, then drag all of the messages from the

IMAP to the default pst outlook created.
