Transfer cpanel addon domain to whm account (email specific)

Aug 11, 2010

A while back I asked some questions in relation to transferring our addon domains to their own whm server accounts.

Because of the workload of past months we haven't been able to do it until now.

We ran some tests and we are pretty sure how to transfer most content but we are unable to move the linked email accounts. We tried to create/redeploy cpanel email backups and copy the ftp email folders but they don't seem to work. Googling this topic has revealed a lot of people in similar positions but no answers.

Is there any way to transfer email accounts (completely from mails to passwords) from a cpanel addon domain to a newly created whm account (to which the domain now points) or do I need to tell those customers that their email accounts will be reset? I find it rather hard to believe that there is no solution to this problem... :(
