    Hey everyone,
    I've been struggling with the task of moving a number of users along with they're mailboxes over to one of my new cpanel servers. But since I have several dozen users that are all actively using they're mail- i'm wondering if there is a way to export they're mailboxes and bring it into cpanel. Any suggestions would be helpful! Thanks in advance!

    Is the mail on the Debian server stored in mbox or maildir format? If it's already in maildir format, you should be able to just move the messages over to their corresponding locations on the cPanel server. For the main account on a cPanel server, the path would be /home/cPanelUser/mail where cPanelUser is the cPanel user account (for the main email account for that cPanel user).
