Hello All.

I am in the process of migrating my email account from one hosting provider to another. Both are using cPanel.

I am able to migrate all the email content, but to ensure seamless migration, how can I migrate the password (user email account) as well so that the existing user can keep login using the same password.

Thank you in advance.

Hello,

Could you let us know which method you are using to transfer the account? The following document lists the paths to email data, including username/password data, if you are manually copying the account:

In particular, note the "/home/$user/etc" directory, as that's where email passwords are stored.

Thank you.
