Zimbra migrations using PSTs

PSTs?  Seriously?

Even Microsoft is walking away from and disavowing PSTs.

We found migrating into Exchange using PSTs is really slow and inefficient.

But Zimbra wants to perpetuate this.  See:  How to use the new Zimbra Migration Tool: pst file to Zimbra Desktop.

Ok -- if you have a handful of users -- fine.  If you have a hundred or so and are motivation-challenged or not very good at systems administration -- sure.

If you're an enterprise of any size use real tools.  Pick imapsync for your email migration (follow our guide in reverse) and drop everything else if you have to.
