    Can you be more specific? There is no way to import email itself into a cPanel account that I'm aware of. You can though Import Addresses and Forwarders if that's what you're after:

    Option 1: Use the fetchmail option in Horde (yes it works)

    Option 2: Manually download mails into a mail client, configure the new server with IMAP and drag / drop mails into it.

    If the old server is buggy and fussy, Horde may give problems.
    Also, the default mail size pulling limit is 4MB per mail in Horde. You may want to increase that.

    Howdy,

    If you have root access to both servers and they are both in the same mbox/maildir format you can just scp the files over and fix the permissions. Just another way to skin that cat.

    Thanks!

    Just what I need to know. However, I need a little more detail as to how to achieve this please. I have to move about 7 email accounts with ALL emails over to a new server. Both servers have cPanel and I have root access to both.
    Many thanks.

    Hi,


    If you want to copy the entire cpanel account along with the db and home directory / forwarders etc,
    have you seen this: Copy an Account from Another Server


    If you want to copy only the emails, then you have the options listed in this thread.
