Message archving on a local NAS
we use 1 commom email address (email@example.com with IMAP) and we want to free up space on the mail server by archiving older emails on a NAS, but we still want to be able to search them in TB. We managed to set up the local folder structure for all of us on the NAS. We have set up succesfully the same NAS folder fol all of us. Questions and problems are the following:
- the new content of the Local folder (located on NAS) was synched only after a TB restart. (one of us archived an email and the others saw it in the archive only after restarting TB) - but it is not a big issue, we can live with this.
- the problem appeared when Person 1 moved an email from the Local folder (located on NAS) back to the Inbox on the mail server. The email on the mail server was again visible for everybody (due to IMAP) BUT the archived email disappeared only from the TB of Person 1. The archived email remain for everybody else, even with TB restart.
As I mentioned before, our goal is to free up space on the mail server and keep archived messages somewhere else (on aour NAS for ex.) and reach all the email (from server and archived ones) with the TB search fuction.
Any ideas are welcome.

NAS and shared profile parts is a bad idea. Simple as that. Generally with multiple users data loss of some sort will be the end result.
Better to use a local IMAP server on the NAS and connect each account to the IMAP server implementation with the mail on that server. Everything is still on the NAS as such, but he IMAP server will manage the sharing of emails and storing changes.
