    Do you use Maildir or mbox?

    My squirrelmail install uses Maildir (also note fedora 10 using courier-imap and ispconfig 3)

    Squirrelmail Maildir migration

    I think I need to enable plain text logins for this to work. Does anyone know how to config imap this way?

    Cheers!

    Nevermind ... solved

    Follow the directions at:
    http://www.howtoforge.com/how-to-migrate-mailboxes-between-imap-servers-with-imapsync

    I modified the imapsync command line as follows to use plain text passwords. I think it is good to put your passwords in a file so that anyone who can look at system processes won't see them (see the website above).

    Code:
    imapsync --host1 [oldhost.com] --user1 [oldhostusername] --passfile1 [/tmp/passwordfile] --authmech1 PLAIN --host2 [newhost.com] --user2 [newhostusername] --passfile2 [/tmp/passwordfile] –authmech2 PLAIN
