Copy mail messages to new server.

I've upgraded from ISPConfig 2 to 3 and everything worked like a charm. I have one client who only uses IMAP for mail and need to know if I can copy all mail messages and custom folders to the new mail account?

Semi-solved my own question.

What I did in the interim was to create a backup mail account for the client and I just copied over the directories and files. I had to make sure that I changed ownership to vmail:vmail to make the mails accessible though.

Next step will be to try copy over files and directories to the main account without messing with mail and directories already there.

Any points in this regard will be appreciated.

I suggest you take a look at imapsync:

Thanks a lot Falko. Exactly what I was looking for.

Another solution might be imapcopy ( ) which is also available as a package for Debian/Ubuntu. But I haven't tried this yet.
