    We are FTP'ing accounts between cPanel boxes and because of firewall issues we don't want to use the copy account command...

    Is there a file with the email passwords we can copy over so that the customers don't get interrupted with their email accounts?

    Thanks in Advance.

    Mike,
    Did you find a solution to this? I'm attempting something similar. During a server move, the e-mail account information did not make it to the server. I'm not sure where to start looking for the clients e-mail configurations and passwords.

    copying email passwords...

    In the account directory there is an etc directory. Copy the passwd and shadow file.
