Hello,

Is there any option so that we can migrate our all mails from ZOHO to cPanel ?

For this we have contacted with ZOHO please check their response in the below:

=================

You can use the below server settings (POP/IMAP) to transfer the emails from Zoho to Cpanel :
POP Migration :
Incoming Server Name: poppro.zoho.com
Port: 995
Require SSL: Yes
Username: Your email address.
IMAP Migration :
Incoming Server Name: imappro.zoho.com
Port: 993
Require SSL: Yes
Username: Your email address.
However for step by step instructions, you need to contact Cpanel who will help you with that.
Hope the information was helpful to you.
=================

Regards,
Tarak Nath

I have done this successfully in the past using IMAP

In a mail client (eg Thunderbird)

  1. Create an IMAP account for the ZOHO account using the details above
  2. In cPanel create your new (destination) email account
  3. Create an IMAP account for your new account
  4. Connect to the ZOHO account and allow all the inbox, sent, etc mail boxes to populate
  5. Drag the files you want to move into the new cPanel account boxes (set up any new boxes you might want prior to doing this) as necessary OR select/copy/paste as required
You should now have copies of all the mails on your cPanel account.

Please note: If the mailboxes contain a lot of mail, or you are having to move multiple accounts, this can be a laborious and slow process, especially if your internet connection is slow to/from your email client box.

I did find a 5 year old feature request at Migrate IMAP mailbox to cPanel It seems to have been abandoned but you can go vote for it if you like :)

Hope this helps.

Hello @Tarak Nath,

The method provided by @rpvw is the best approach, as we don't offer a native feature in cPanel & WHM to migrate emails from remote email service providers such as ZOHO.

Thank you.
