    Hi, I have a client that was on a plesk box and their plesk software is shot. their VPS host says they need to reprovision their server but that will wipe out their email. Does anyone know how we can get their email from the other server and into our cpanel?

    Thanks

    Hello :)

    Is Plesk functioning at all on their system? If it is, you can transfer the entire account to cPanel using the "Copy multiple accounts/packages from another server" option in Web Host Manager. This will include email accounts and their respective emails stored on the server.

    Beyond that, if the Plesk server uses the maildir format, it shouldn't be too difficult to manually copy the email data to the cPanel server. You would need to create the email accounts on the cPanel server, and copy over the emails. The following document provides some details on importing email accounts:

    Import Email Addresses/Forwarders

    In addition, the document below provides some useful details on the paths used for email in cPanel:

    Thank you.
