    Hi,

    With the help of Cpanel Forum, I was able to move emails from one user (email1@domain.com) to another user (email2@domain.com).

    Now, I need to move/merge email accounts of 2 users (email3@domain.com and email4@domain.com) into another email account (email5@domain.com). That way, email5@domain.com can still check/read previous emails sent to email3@domain.com and email4@domain.com

    How can I do this?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello :)

    Could you elaborate on how you copied the email data the first time? Is there a particular reason you can not use the same method?

    Thank you.

    If you have shell access then you would need to copy those emails from one email account to another. If shell accesss hasn't been granted to your account then I hope your host should help you on this to copy the emails.

    I did what is stated on this link and it worked:
    http://forums.cpanel.net/f43/how-move-mails-another-email-account-same-cpanel-195971.html

    Should I just copy the contents of cur and new folders of email users (email3@domain.com and email4@domain.com) and paste it inside cur and new folders of user email5@domain.com?

    This will not overwrite anything, right?

    Yes, you should be able to copy that data over. It should not overwrite any data because the individual emails will have unique file names.

    Thank you.
