    Hi,

    Because of a Security warning I've converted all servers from UW-IMAP to Courier/MailDir, but I'm not happy with the fact that my customers are no longer able to use NeoMail. Besides that, I've been pretty comfortable with UW-IMAP for years in a row and Courier/MailDir seems to use more resources...

    Is there a conversion routine/script inside cPanel/WHM which converts Courier/MailDir mailboxes - particularly without errors - back to UW-IMAP?

    Thanks.

    Go on, have a guess
    AFAIK, the only way to return to the mbox format is to perform the restore option, but that does include restoring the old mbox files and their content.

    It's somewhat moot, though. cPanel have said that Neomail will be phased out shortly anyway and that support for mbox may be removed too.
