Default Moving e-mails from old ISPConfig to new one (diff versions)


I have an old version of ISPConfig ( which is running on Debian Lenny. Now I would like to install a new Debian Squezze with current version of ISPConfig and move to new server only mailboxes and DB.

I already installed new ISPConfig according manual The Perfect Server - Debian Squeeze (Debian 6.0) With BIND & Courier [ISPConfig 3]. I moved some tables from dbispconfig (tables: client, mail_domain, mail_forwarding, mail_user and sys_user) and copied mailboxes from /var/vmail. I have also installed Roundcube webmail.

The problem is that I cannot login to mailbox. I tried IMAP, POP3 and webmail.
In /var/log/mail.log there is

Mar 25 14:16:47 mail imapd: chdir /var/vmail/domain.tld/user: Permission denied
Mar 25 14:16:47 mail imapd: user@domain.tld: Permission denied

Where could be the problem? Do I need to copy any other table from old dbispconfig?

Thank you,
