    hi all,
    i have to move all emails from one domain to a new box with latest ISPconfig installed. Old server has running.
    This is what i'm going to do:
    1) recreate the domain on the new ISPconfig box
    2) recreate all the mailboxes (btw, is there a way to import in ispconfig a txt file with all mailboxes to create ?)
    3) tranfer the mail directories to the new machine (via ssh)
    4) change the dns records to point to the new machine

    The only trouble seems to be about the passwords. Can i simply launch a mysql query for users on the mail_users table in mysql ispconfig DB and then update the records on the new box with an update query ? Mail Passwords are stored only on this table or do i need to update some other table/file ?

    Is there another way to accompish the task ?

    Thanks in advance.

    you can copy over the passwords form the old server, they are only stored in mail_user table.
