Hi guys,

I'm trying to transfer an account from a third party cpanel server to mine.

As its a third party machine I have no shell / root access to it other than cpanel.

FTPing the /mail directory (that holds the data for each account) contains blank files (presumably due to permissions), as does the cpanel backup feature.

I've tried using imapsync however it doesnt seem to want to run (fails on dependancies despite the libraries running fine on the server).

Does anyone know of any other sync software for two accounts?

Hello,

You should be able to move the /mail folder over as you said, you may have to change the permissions prior, but that should work for you. Please let me know if it doesn't, or you can submit a ticket via the link below.

Thank you,
Matthew Curry

Hi sorry for the late reply,

I couldnt get the /mail dir to transfer correctly over to FTP (files came through empty).

As I couldnt get ssh access to the old box - i found i could transfer the email via thunderbird, which worked great!

Thanks again
