Hey all , we almost got a flawless 180 account transfer from from plesk to Cpanel/WHM. now according to each account everything seems to have went well, but we cant get any of the passwords to work on the email or ftp accounts. im mostly worried about email accounts.

is there a way to transfer over these 700 email passwords from plesk to cpanel? i did search around for a bit and i just want to mention that if i change the password in cpanel then the emails works np.

any quick input would be great. BTW where does the passwords get stored on the server?

Hmm, I think it would be best to have our technical analysts take a look at this for you. They may be able to transfer those email passwords for you. You can submit a support ticket using the link below.

Note, this would fall under the assistance provided by our free Transfer Assistance Program if you have root access to both servers. More information about the free assistance we provide can be found on our website at: http://www.cpanel.net/products/cpwhm/cpanel11/transfer-asst.htm

hey thx david, i did open a ticket and robert the transfer develpoer told me he should have this issue fixed by tuesday night. but i can wait past monday so i need to try to resolve this own my own.

i managed to retrieve all the email accounts and passwords from plesk, now i simply need to figure out how to edit email accounts in cpanel and change the passwords to the ones in the text file.

so i figured i write a script to automate the job.
let me know if this is a good idea or not. maybe there is another place i should write a script for this.

i ahve a few questions do, first off from what i understand this willl code will allow me to properly change passwords for a given account.

Code:
<cpanel Email="passwdpop($FORM{'email'},$FORM{'password'},$FORM{'quota'},$FORM{'domain'})">
so my question is , if i where to use php cause im most comfortable in that , how can i call that script from within php or should i do this in another language?

btw, i managed to grab all passwords and email accounts from plesk using this technique
