    Hi,

    I need to transfer about 20 addon domains and their email accounts to new host where I already have some sites, mail accounts, databases etc..

    For some reason, I think that my best bet is to transfer mail account manually like: copying etc and mail folder from old to new host via FTP.. Now while this works very well, I have one problem. All transferred mails again have unread flag (like there are newer opened).

    Now my question is: Is there a way to move mail accounts while in same way preserve read/unread flags?

    Thanks!

    why don't you just use the Copy account from other server function in WHM?

    Hello,

    As SoftDux said, I am not sure why you aren't using cPanel account transfer utility! Perhaps you are trying to separate your add-on domains as individual cPanel accounts on new server?

    Anyway you can use "imapsync" to migrate email accounts between servers! Look at Guide to imapsync - Zimbra :: Wiki for details!!

    Thank you,
    Nibin.
