uebimiau default mail folders location/migration question

    I am wondering how I may transfer users' email from an old Horde based system to another system running uebimiau... Right now their email is stored in /home/user/mail/ in folders named 'sent-mail', 'inbox', 'trash', etc..

    In uebimiau, the mail is saved in /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/temp/webmail/user_host.domain.com/inbox or trash or sent-mail etc..

    It looks like the folder is only created after the user logs in.. Must I login as each user, copy the old mail folders over, or is there a system in place to assist the migration? Some users also have custom folders 'Lacrosse' for example.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Looks like uebimiau stores individual .eml and Horde stored all the email in mbox format..

    Ok.. I used mbox2eml, but the original email is missing header information crucial to UebiMiau's interface. The emails are all there, but the header information does not contain the info necessary to supply the 'To', 'Subject', and 'Date' fields in UebiMaui... Looks like it was sufficient for IMP, but not UebiMaui.

    Where can I find the code that look for the header information that used to display the 'To', 'Subject', and 'Date' fields?

    As long as the original emails are in their mailboxes (mbox or Maildir), you can just log in to Uebimiau, and the emails should be there.

    What path is Uebimiau searching for those mboxes? Right now it's saving everything in individual .eml files in an obscure temp directory..

    This is not a obscure temp directory, its the iSPConfig tempo directory ;) You can set the path in the uebimiau config file.

    So I can set uebimiau's temp directory to be:

    somehow if I wanted?

    I'm not sure, but you can try it.
