    Dear all,

    I moved manually my ispconfig3 websites and data to a new ispconfig3 server in order to replace the old one.
    I'm facing an issue only with the mailboxes.

    I copied the content of var/vmail to the new server and did a Chown to the folder.

    Three issues:

    1. The permissions are not correct. Some folders are chmod 777, whereas on the old server it's 770.
    All the folders have different permissions on the new server.
    => How to correct the permissions without to modify all the subfolders manually please ?

    2. The password of the mailboxes have not been migrated. How to migrate the password please ?

    3. The mailboxes I migrated don't appear in the ISPCONFIG3 panel under EMail > Email mailboxes
    I had to create manually the mailboxes to show them in the panel.
    Is there a way to update ISPCONFIG3 with the mailboxes copied in /var/vmail/ please ? I have a lot of websites and mailboxes to migrate, it will be difficult to do it for every website.

    Many thanks for your help.

    Best regards
