Recover Zarafa Server database

Zarafa is an open source collaborative software that acts as an alternative to MS Exchange Server. It can easily integrate with Microsoft Outlook to allow sharing of mails, appointments, and other items. Zarafa has its own mail client known as 'WebAccess' that very much resembles the Outlook desktop application.

The Zarafa server keeps all data in a MySQL database. This database contains various tables storing your mail items (email messages, tasks, appointments, notes, etc.), their properties, users and groups, and different access rights. The Zarafa server database may easily become susceptible to corruption and this corruption may occur during the normal operation or as result of a server crash. Typically, database corruption occurs due to hardware failures, power surges, bugs in MySQL code, etc. This results in loss of vital emails and other items stored in the database.

To efficiently recover Zarafa database and retrieve all your precious mailbox data, use Stellar Phoenix Zarafa Recovery.
