    Hi,

    I have a lot of accounts I want to migrate to cpanel. Unfortunately, they are all using qmail and we cannot afford to loose any of the emails.

    Is there a way to migrate qmail account to exim? I won't mind if resorting to manual method is the only way as long as I can move them.

    Thanks.

    Herbert

    What mailbox format is Qmail using? Maildir? Mbox?

    Are the mailbox for the users one single inbox file or is it a directory like cur, new with a file inside for each message?

    Hi,

    Qmail is using maildir with "cur" and one file per email. We already found a way to do it. Our data center ran a script to convert the cpanel mailbox to maildir format (which removed the neomail hhmm.. and deleted the other emails. fortunately this is a new server) and we just copied over the maildir files :D Horay!

    Now all i have to figure out is how to do this via script. Is there a command line to create emailboxes for each site with predefined passwords?

    Thanks!
