    Email transfer tool needed

    I am looking for a tool/shell script that will log into the old server (after a transfer) and download all the emails off it and put it in the correct email account on the new server.

    Anyone know anything that could help me do this?

    it seems on line ;)
    I am not sure if it will work on your server but I have it done several times, even from unix to a windows PC and it worked. But it depends on your hosts' environments

    Most unix/linux platforms have the <mail> directory. You could tar it preserving permissions, then ftp to your new host, then untar it to the same location, preserving permissions.

    Do not delete your original <mail> directory, and backup your new host's <mail> directory first

    If you use webmail it might be different because of the email clients your hosts provide

    Hope it helps

    If your mailboxes are using imap, I would recommend IMAPSync.

    I recently used it to transfer 2GB of emails from one server to another - it worked great!
