    We recently had a client that upgraded from a shared hosting account to a dedicated server. Most of the account copied over to the new server OK, with the exception of e-mail. None of the e-mail accounts were moved and none show in the users Cpanel.

    Is it possible to move this over again without having to recreate everyone's accounts and passwords? There are roughly 50 accounts and was hoping to just move things over (like WHM should have done). The rest of the site came over correctly, its just e-mail that is causing issues.

    Go on, have a guess
    You could probably just copy over /home/account/mail and /home/account/etc and then run:


    and just to be sure:


    The last recreates the symlinks for the account files.
