    Hi ,
    I want to take backup from old server to new server, But backups is disabled on old server.
    So I've copied the old /home/$user/mail to new server's /home/$user/mail by logging in to SSH (root).
    and changed the owner of mail folder to 540.mil2 but , it didn't worked .
    Please provide me a solution for this.
    And also I don't have root access to the old server , I've got reseller access to the old server only.
    Waiting for your kind reply . Thanks.
    Regards,
    Shahriar
