    Hello,

    Apart from 4 accounts, all the conversion went fine. I found out that four accounts had bad permission (wrong ownership) and fixed it.

    But how can I manually convert these four maildirs to the currently already active Courier maildir format?

    # /scripts/convert2courier
    Already configured.

    I just need to make sure these four accounts are using the correct maildir format.

    And yes, I tried to go on Webmail and it works fine (does that mean everything is fine?)

    I found this script /scripts/maildir_converter ; can this help me out? Again, I'm trying to avoid running this on all the maildirs again, just need to make sure these four last ones are Ok.

    What type of conversion did you do?

    To be clear, are you talking about a conversion from mbox to Maildir, or a conversion from Dovecot to Courier-IMAP?

    If Webmail is working well, then there is likely nothing more that needs to be done. Webmail uses IMAP, so anything that might cause a problem in a mail client like Outlook or Thunderbird should also appear in Webmail.

    You can try using /scripts/maildir_converter, which converts to/from Dovecot and Courier-IMAP formats, but if the accounts appear to be working well, this may not be necessary.
