Default Server Migration

I have a dedicated server and i will change the provider for the same price and a very better service.
It's possible to :
-Migrate and conserve old mails and receive new mails
-Conserve all clients data hosted with ISPC (Clients/website/data/mails/emails...)
I have some idea to how to proceed :
-Change my domain DNS/MX...
That's all, i don't have an idea to how to transfert data server to server...
Thank you very much

For the emails you can either:

Archive, then restore to new server - the directory structure has to be the same, which isnt always the case eg: ISPConfig uses /var/vmail/[domain]/[email address]/maildir, but i have used/seen in the past /home/vmail/[domain]/[email address]/ with out maildir... etc.

Download a script and use it to login to each email account and copy to the new server using imap. The down side is you need to know the username/password, and tell it to do each account in turn - can be slow.

Or Just copy from one server to the new one - which is what i do, using WinSCP, this way i only copy what i want (trash etc can be left behind. I dont need to know users passwords, and it is quick. I just setup all the new email accounts on the new server and do a straight copy across, as for users passowrds i usually just dump from the mySQL vmail database and modify what i need to then upload into new database.. And make sure you change the owner/group of the newly created copied directories to vmail/vmail (5000).
