    We have a server in which an admin setup a standard install of Dovecot with a large number of standard unix accounts. I need to transfer the domains and mail to a cPanel server running Dovecot.

    How can you convert pre-existing Dovecot accounts to cPanel accounts or is there a way to script the mail conversion process to work with cPanel's format?

    The current server uses /home/user/mail/.imap/INBOX/dovecot.index instead of the cPanel format and thats what I need to figure out how to convert.

    I don't know of any automated solution out there, the migration scripts cPanel has are not for something like that.

    What method do you think would be the best to handle this migration. I know it's going to be a manual migration, but I'm trying to figure out the best way to do it.

    Any recommendations?

    I think you have to write perl(any other) script to migrate the account over to the cpanel server
