    Hi all, anybody know how to migrate emails from plesk (no root access) to CPanel (with root access) manually.

    As the plesk account is using shared hosting so I've no root access to the plesk server to migrate the mail directory, any solutions to migrate plesk email accounts data manually to cpanel?

    Appreciate if someone know the solution here :)

    The following document provides information about where email data is stored on the cPanel server should you need to manually migrate data from a remote control panel (under Step 3):

    How to Manually Migrate Accounts to cPanel from Unsupported Control Panels - cPanel Knowledge Base - cPanel Documentation

    I recommend manually creating the email accounts on the cPanel server using the "Email Accounts" option in cPanel first, and then copying over the email data from the Plesk server. You may also find the "imapsync" utility helpful:

    Thank you.
