Best way to copy mails from IMAP-account to another IMAP-acount / lost messages

Post by hmbaer » 2019-06-21 13:28

Hello!

What is the best way to migrate mails from one IMAP-account to another IMAP-account (old provider to my hmailserver)?

If i select all messages and copy them at the same time , there are some lost (Thunderbird).

This problem occurs with many servers.

Is the only workaround to only copy in packages of for example 100-500 mails?
Can this problem occur when copying between folders at the same server, too (or only when copying between different servers)?


Thank you!
