    Hi,

    Someone can explain to me how to do this?:

    I have access to both server, old and new.

    Please!

    Are you wanting to copy a single email account, or a whole domain account? If the latter, you can use the 'transfer account' feature of WHM (assuming that's the access you have)

    If you just have cPanel access (you're not the webserver admin) then you can grab a backup from your old server and restore on the new one. (may need help from your new webhost for this method, not sure..)

    If you only want to transfer an email account then you don't need to restore whole user account by using Cpanel backup file.

    1: To do this job you simply need to create an email with same id on destination server.

    2: Then replace user email directory on destination with source one.

    i.e
    -----------------------
    root@Server [/home/username/mail/domain.com]# ls -al
    total 8
    drwxr-x--- 10 username username 4096 Jan 12 20:37 ./
    drwxrwx--- 6 username username 4096 Jan 22 22:43 ../
    drwxr-x--- 5 username username 4096 Aug 1 2008 abuse/
    drwxr-x--- 9 username username 4096 Jan 12 20:40 admin/
    drwxr-x--- 9 username username 4096 Oct 5 16:25 webmaster/
    drwxr-x--- 10 username username 4096 Oct 29 04:53 john/
    -----------------------
