Re: log file specifics - session id's

Logs are only normally used for troubleshooting purposes.

There are AWStats logs for statistical purposes and mailservers are not normally restarted that often. As Matt says, if you let us know what you are trying to achieve we can perhaps help you better.

Re: what will happen when i change imap delimiter?

Probably better to setup a test server on a pc/laptop and import the data, then connect to both servers with an imap client and drag/drop the emails from one server to another.

That's the way i moved data from an old server over to hmail many moons ago.
