I am in the process of moving my site to Dreamhost. In addition to my site, I want to move my email messages over. I’ve read the wiki and searched the forums. I’ve converted my emails to the maildir format and have set up my email user. However, I am unclear as to exactly where I should place my email files (the ones I am copying over to Dreamhost).
In my Maildir directory, I see the following:
I understand that cur, new, and tmp are directories that are present in every email folder with the Maildir format. Is that correct? Is Maildir/ essentially the INBOX or do I need to create Maildir/INBOX?
Also, my existing email has a bunch of folders. Where would I copy these? Would these folders be sub-directories of Maildir?
I’ve also sent a help request, but in case that takes too long, any advice here will be greatly appreciated.
