    Create the second mailbox account and use your choice of command to move the files over from the old account into the new account. For instance,

    Code:
    cd /home/user/mail/domain.com/oldmailbox; tar cf - . | (cd ../newmailbox; tar xf -)
     
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...
