    Hi everyone,

    I am using ispconfig on a server for some time now.
    As I have bought a new server I need to move all the websites and the mail.

    One of my clients uses the webclient UebiMiau and also needs to be moved.
    On the old server I can see his mail's in the ../user/username/maildir folder.
    I have created a website on the new server just like I did on the old server for this client.
    But there is no ~maildir folder.:eek:
    So I am unable to copy his data.

    Is there some place I should look else?
    The old server is upgraded to the latest version of ispconfig.
    And the new server also has of course the latest version.

    I also need to move his address book.;)
    Where can I find this and where should I copy this to?

    Any help would verry much be apreaciated.
    Thanks in advance.

    moving mail

    Thanks for youre reply.

    Well I did almost moved like in this thread:

    As I do not have more than 10 websites running I used the backup method of ispconfig to get the data from the old server.
    Setup the website and all mail users by hand on the new server and copy the /web data into the /web directory.
    So I did not copy the whole /home directory!!;)

    Only one user is using webmail and has a ~maildir directory, like the others, on the old server.
    On the new server NOT ALL websites have a ~maildir directory.
    And the users directory who is using webmail does not have a ~maildir dirctory where I can copy the data into. :confused:
    So this is why I got confused.
    Espacialy because the user has mail in his inbox on the new server, which is not in the ~maildir directory as there is none.

    Reading through the other post I gues I should check out the /var/spool/mail dir.
    But here can I find his guestbook?

    Do you use Maildir or mbox on the new server? What's the output of
    netstat -tap
