Hi. I migrated my client's website from their old hosting company to my reseller hosting. The old hosting company used Centos Web Panel and I use Cpanel. The problem is I can not view/access the old emails. I have the email backup file which I downloaded from the old host before we changed the nameservers. How can I restore the emails? Or how can I extract the emails to work properly from the backup file?

Does the account still exist on the old Centos Web Panel server? The easiest option would be to use imapsync if it does. We have a couple of tutorials on it here:

If not, are you aware of the format they store email in? maildir, dbox or mdbox etc.
