    I know that technically you are not supposed to be able to migrate from ISPConfig 2 to ISPConfig 3. So I am doing everything manually. I have the sites and database situation all worked out. My next problem is that I need to figure out how to correctly move the email over.

    I realize that the mail location has changed, but can I just drop the emails from the email/cur folder from one machine to another? I notice the domain name is in the name of the email files. Is that going to break anything?

    You can just copy over the email subfolders (cur, new, etc.) and then chown them to vmail:vmail

    Thats not a problem, the domain part in the filename does not matter for the pop3 / imap server.
