adding email from hmail server to another hmail server

Post by Heeter » 2008-05-13 06:32

Hi all,

I have two separate hmail servers running on two separate server towers. I would to add the existing domains from one hmail server to the other hmail server.

I know that I can just create the accounts on the second server from the first, but how do I move the mail over?

Thanks,

Heeter

A few different ways.

Easiest is to backup and restore I reckon.
You could connect to both from an IMAP e-mail client and move or copy the e-mails from within your client
Use something IMAPCopy
send from one to the other as normal e-mail

Sorry,

I forgot to mention that these two servers use squirrelmail as php client for each.

Doesn't matter, but you can't open two accounts at once with Squirrelmail that I am aware of.

You can open two IMAP accounts with Thunderbird, or Outlook Express or Outlook, or ...

You could also try IMAPSize, it has a command line feature for automated backups...

Just as an idea:

Backup and restore the DB, copy the data directory and synchronize. You will have e-mails and accounts as well.

Hi guys,

I was gonna ask if I can do this with the existing data folder that I copied over.
