    Guys, i kindly need your help.
    1. I have been running qmail mail server whereby the qmail maildir /home/vpopmail/domains/account/Maildir
    with maildir has courierimapkeywords courierimapsubscribed courierimapuiddb cur new tmp
    2. I would like to migrate the accounts to whm 11.30.0 which has exim running with dovecot
    but the Maildir is different from qmail one
    /home/xxx/mail/domainname/account/
    with Maildir ./ ../ cur/ .Drafts/ .Junk/ maildirsize new/ .Sent/ tmp/ .Trash/


    How can i make this migration successful

    Do you have a control panel running on the other server? If it is Plesk, which uses qmail, we have a WHM > Transfers > Copy multiple accounts/packages from another server option for Plesk to cPanel transfers.

    The accounts are not on a control panel, it's running on qmail server that is installed with vpopmail. We i configure the mail on the cpanel i click on remote mail exchanger which has this several domains with many accounts.
    I would like to transfer to my server that has whm with exim end dovecot.

    Is the qmail machine using maildir or mbox? cPanel uses maildir, so it would be easier if both are using maildir format.

    Hello Robert,

    You are showing courier on the qmail machine but using dovecot on the cPanel one. Have you tried switching to courier on the cPanel machine in WHM > Mailserver Selection area? You could always switch back to dovecot after you've transferred the email accounts.

    Thanks.
