Will it work to transfer accounts without any issues from other hosting providers if they are using maildir and we are using mdbox?
Or if they are using mdbox and we are using maildir?
Can we have customers with maildir and mdbox on the same server?

Hello,

Yes, the Transfer Tool feature will detect the mailbox format and convert it when necessary. Also, yes, the mailbox format is configurable on a per-account basis:

"WHM Home » Email » Mailbox Conversion » Select Accounts"

Thank you.
