    I see some of my new servers are running Maildir, but my old servers still use MBOX. How do I upgrade them?

    Thanks

    Is there a way to convert a single account at a time? I have already converted the entire server, but I am wondering for future accounts that I transfer from a mbox server.

    There's no option, as far as I know, of specifying individual accounts.

    However, /scripts/convert2maildir will only convert mbox mailboxes to maildir therefore if you run it on a server that already has maildir mailboxes they will be ignored.
