    create a new email account at the domain u want to make the backup and copy the inbox of the account that needs to be backed up to the inbox of the newly created account. say..

    123@abc.com => E-mail to be backed up
    create 123@xyz.com

    copy inbox at /home/abc/mail/abc.com/123/inbox to /home/xyz/mail/xyz.com/123/inbox

    that will do.

    Think at the Horde database and configuration...

    Horde use a "global" database for all customers on the server. At this database are all data and configuration/setting which made by Horde like the notepad, calender etc.

    Hey Linux-image...

    If your customers use Horde and put there some notes, dates and some datas in the adress book and you want to copy the mail accounts from server a to server b then you have also to transfer the horde database. Otherwise your customer dont have their settings and configuration inside Horde...

    Otherwise it is everything ok, what you said.. :D

    Greetings... KimBO
