    Hi,

    I need to move all the email accounts and all the emails contained in them, from xxx.com to yyy.com. The two domains are on the same server.

    I read that I can move the folders inside mail/xxx.com/* to mail/yyy.com/, but this will not create the email accounts right?

    The only solution I see is the following: first, I create the email accounts through the cpanel interface, then I copy the folders. Is this the only correct way?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hello,

    Yes, you'd need to manually setup the new email accounts, and then copy over the email data. The following document is intended for manual migrations, but it provides some helpful information about where email data is stored:

    How to Manually Migrate Accounts to cPanel from Unsupported Control Panels - cPanel Knowledge Base - cPanel Documentation

    Thank you.
