Fetchmail to get email from old server


#1

Hi,

I’m currently in the process of migrating my domain to DH. Some of the users use webmail and I want to fetch all their emails from the old server to the new mailboxes that I have created.

Is there a way I can do that? If so, how?

Thanks.

There are several ways to approach the problem, but which of thosethat are likely to work for your is primarily dependent on what tools/access you have available at your old host, and what format the mail/maildir is stored in.

There is a general guide to some of these tools/methods at:
