    We just purchased a smaller company who used Gmail for their email. We would like to migrate the GMail domains to cPanel and use our server for the default email server. The domains themselves have been moved and are using cPanel for everything else. Does anyone have experience with exporting from GMail to cPanel? If so is there a way to pull a whole domain and not just individual users (we have around 250 mailboxes on the Ikano servers to move)?

    We typically use imapsync to move just the mail portion of GMail... Calendars and contacts are another story...

    Thank you both! I've seen instructions for IMAP transfer before, but have not seen something that would be easily scriptable like imapsync. I've been looking around and as for contacts, Takeout (http://www.google.com/takeout/) looks to be the best option, just have the users export their contacts if they need/want them. If anyone has a better suggestion, I'm open on that as well.
