    did a first synchronization with the Migration Tool
    - an example of a command to sync just a single user's eMail to do an update?

    You can limit the re-sync to a specific data type like resync email only, but not to just one specific email account. If you really want to copy the data of a single email account only (and both servers were using ispconfig and dovecot IMAP), then you can use the rsync command. Example (the command is run on the old server as root user):

    rsync -avz --delete -e ssh /var/vmail/somedomain.tld/user/ [email protected]:/var/vmail/somedomain.tld/user/
    Replace with the IP address of the new server.

    Thank You
    but sorry, I forgot the Tool migrated from Courier to Dovecot :oops:
    so, suppose it's better, for me, something like ./migrate --only-mail=<domain.com>, correct?
    always consider that first single migration..
