    Hi Folks,

    I'm trying to export a full email account (2gb) with 50+ folders... and re-import it on another cPanel account.

    Is there a way to do it all in one go? The only way I've seen is to do each folder individually, either by an export or copy / paste... Both ways are a bit cumbersome to say the least.

    I would have thought there would have been a simple way to export and import a full email account.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Hello :)

    The supported method of migrating email data is to transfer the full account utilizing the transfer tools in Web Host Manager. There are currently no existing transfer tools that will migrate email data only. You will need to manually migrate this data. The following guide is intended for migrations from unsupported control panels, however it details where email data is stored in the event you want to manually copy the data:

    You could also try using an unsupported utility such as imapsync:

    Thank you.
