Default Migrating Email From CPanel

Hello,

I'm attempting to migrate some accounts from CPanel to a brand new ISPConfig 3 installation. The web sites and databases should just be a matter of creating backups and copying them to their new locations. But it looks like the formats used to store old email are completely different between the two. How could I migrate these accounts' email over without loosing the saved messages that have already been delivered? Is there some documentation on the two formats used?

Thanks,

-- Tim

On the ISPConfig 3 system, Maildir is used to store emails. Do you know what was used on the CPanel system? mbox or Maildir?

It might be possible to migrate the mails using imapsync.

Well, I went ahead and setup a fetchmail job which worked ... sort of. Ended up loosing the original sent/received dates and lost the read/unread status. Will probably try imapsync next time
