Suggestions on migrating from own server to paid

Post by kipp » 2020-04-02 03:26

Greetings all,

I have been running an hMailserver for the extended family a pretty long time and I no longer have the time. I was single and had the time and now I have a family and don't. I am hoping I can migrate the domain and mail to a paid service. I'd like to get some suggestions on providers to host the domain and mail server. Ideally an affordable service and easy path to migrate the mail would be great. Tips on how to go about this process would be wonderful.

Sincere thanks!

depending on number of accounts, but often easiest to get users to log onto a new server and the old server and simply copy messages and folders across if you use IMAP, or for POP just set the new server to download all mail from the old server
Just 'cause I link to a page and say little else doesn't mean I am not being nice.

Or search for "imapsync". I really like https://imapsync.lamiral.info/
Downloadable at https://imapsync.lamiral.info/dist/

In another forum I’ve read a lot about https://mailbox.org/
I don’t have any personal experience with this provider.
