Moving Email records from dreamhost


#1

I need your assistance with moving my email records /data from dreamhost.

It seems as if dreamhost has changed Maildir and have everything organized in a different way.

Could you provide me instructions how to do move our email records to the new email host.

Thank you.

You’ll have to use IMAP to move messages. Either use your mail client with IMAP Sync turned on, or try this:

Thanks Scott.

Do I need to know each user password in order to be able to move the data/files?

You sure do. Mail is stored in mailboxes that are only accessible by POP or IMAP, for which you need passwords. Even in the old accounts, the mailbox was in the user’s home directory, for which you needed that user’s password to access the maildir.
