Migrated cPanel to cPanel - Large accounts, over 1000 accounts.

And this ugly option "Converting to maildir if needed" ... Take over 15 minutes per account when transfering.

Any ideas for turn it off ?

Both 2 servers, use same Mail Server, Same option.

The conversion from maildir is something most people did years ago, I don't believe you can move without doing that. You could run /scripts/converttomaildir on the old machine but I *think* that doing so would kill the mailserver for a bit while it was running. You are probably best off like you are doing right now and just being patient.

I just want to provide some minor corrections. The conversion isn't from maildir but to maildir. The conversion is from mbox to maildir basically.

Also, the script to convert from mbox to maildir is /scripts/convert2maildir (there isn't one called converttomaildir if you go to scripts folder and look for one there by that name).

Thanks for the correction on that, I need to wake up a bit more sometimes before replying hah.

haha it happens to all of us, plus it's been so long since most of us dealt with the maildir conversion. I think the last one I did was about 2 years ago :)
