    I am transferring accounts from servers using cppop , to maildir servers using the /scripts/pkgacct function. The /scripts/restorepkg function seems able to initiate the conversion from cppop to maildir format .

    Is their a way to do this manually on individual accounts? If so, what is the proper synxax ?

    Perhaps I should elaborate.. I have cpanel servers that are using cpanel 11 using the maildir setup of the mailboxes, and also boxes using older versions of cpanel using the older inbox (single file for an inbox rather than messages spread across a folder). I am transferring the old accounts to the new servers and a maildir conversion script runs upon transferring them. I know the script exists in the /scripts/ directory, but I am wondering what syntax is needed to get it to convert the inboxes without destroying them ? Any help ?

    /scripts/convert2maildir is an interactive script. IIRC, there's an option to only convert those mailboxes that are still on mbox, keeping those on maildir as they are.
