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?
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!
