    Is there any easy way to migrate from plesk 8.6 to cpanel?

    I have 100 domains each with many email boxes. Plesk uses qmail and cpanel uses sendmail. The migration of the email boxes and users/passwords seems like it would be the most difficult or impossible to do.

    I am assuming I can just do a dump of all the mysql databases and bring them in to mysql But somehow Cpanel would have to know which database belongs to which domain for management purposes. Any ideas?

    Then of course there are the web sites, This shouldn't be too difficult.

    I have tried about 5 times today to contact your transfer assistance hotline to ask them this question. Every time I attempt to call, I get about 20 rings, then it dumps my call. No choice to hold, voicemail, or anything. Is this an indication of the level of support I can expect if I purchase your product?

    I have PM'd you with my direct contact information. This is not typical, and I am informing our system administrators of this issue immediately.
