    Guys,

    I need to migrate some e-mail accounts of Zimbra to Cpanel.

    Zimbra stores the passwords in ldap using SHA without salt, it´s possible import these passwords?

    I know the cpanel creates a shadow file for each domain, but it passwords are stored with salt (linux standard).

    Hello,

    There's no supported method of importing the email accounts into cPanel from Zimbra. The passwords are not compatible based on the information you provided. You will need to create new email accounts and copy of the emails to the appropriate directory. You may find this guide helpful:

    Thank you.

    I know that an automatic migration is not possible in this case, the contents of the mailboxes would be transferred via imapsync, the problem is related passwords, have nearly a thousand accounts to migrate, distributed among 100 domains, I can not change the passwords, would generate a very high flow support.

    If it were possible to store the passwords without salt my problem would be solved.

    This isn't possible with cPanel, and there are no supported password conversion utilities I'm aware of that can convert your passwords automatically.

    Thank you.
