Hello,

My company has recently decided to switch from iMail 2006 (8.x) to the latest version of hMail.
I'm relatively stupid towards this process and am looking for some help.

I have already established domains/accounts. Also they aren't installed on the same server.

Things I need to do:
Move all existing emails from all the iMail server accounts to the hMail server accounts.
Move the address books of each account also.

I'm not very familiar with scripting languages, manual process' will work for me. Basically any explanation would be helpful, but again i'm not too familiar with either of these programs. My apologies for being a noob!

Thanks in advance

--Jeff Morrell.

EDIT: My apologies if this is in the wrong forum, please move if so.

if it's on a new server it's easy to do. just connect to both servers with something like thunderbird (create two accounts) then just drag and drop emails between them using IMAP.

Or you can go with a program such as IMAPCopy which will do the same thing.

Hopefully you already know that hMail has no native support for address books. :wink:

I ended up grabbing email's with Hmail's external accounts feature. I really wish something could be done about the address book's, not looking forward to manually going through client's accounts one by one. Please help!!!

Thanks.

Which email client will your 'clients' be using?

Outlook and the webmail client, Roundcube I believe it is.

Roundcube can import contacts in the vCard format, but sharing between mail clients will require some exploration into LDAP servers.

Unfortunately I know nothing of imail, have you looked at some of the existing posts on the subject?
