Additionally, while the outlook process is running the .DMP file can't be moved or copied.
Compress the files and send the files and version information of Zarafa and Outlook to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If the compressed file is larger than 20 Mb, please upload it somewhere where we can download the file, and add a link in the email.
