    Hi folks,

    So I have seen many articles on moving ISPConfig to a new server. But I am doing something a bit different that I am not sure will be covered by a simple move of the VMail folder.

    I have an ISPC 3 server that was built with Courier. I have built a new one that is now setup with Dovecot.

    Any ideas on how I can get all the mail moved over? I am pretty sure that the database dumps would be the same as well as getting the websites moved.. the mail is where I am asking for assistance.

    Thanks in advance!!

    Thanks Till...

    Now.. if I have already jumped the gun and installed fresh with Dovecot do I need to go back and build fresh again with Courier and then migrate or can I have both for a short time ?

    You dont have to install courier again, just copy over the /var/vmail folder structure and ispconfig database from your old server and then run the migration script to convert the structure from courier format to dovecot.
