    * Best way to transfer email?

    Hey guys,

    So I need to switch hosting providers in about a week and I really need a way to keep all of my emails after the switch. I am using IMAP with Outlook 2007 and I have already downloaded a copy using Outsource XP. I was wondering if there is a way that as an end-user (but experienced server admin), I can download my emails and have them imported into my new server (or even just into the new account on Outlook). Any suggestions? I've lost 2yrs of email once before when my account was deleted with one webhost and I can't afford to do it again. Thanks and Happy Holidays!

    Best Regards,

    If you are using cPanel, you can do a account transfer. All your emails will still stay in your panel. Remember to low your TTL first before transfer and change your MX record to point to the new server.

    Correct me if I am wrong

    Additionally in CPanel (maybe other panels not sure) you can look in your mail folder for your account, all your mail is stored in this directory.... copy it over to your new account and should be good to go....
