I am moving users on a handful of domains from another provider to dreamhost. I have tarballs of the users’ maildirs (same format that DH uses), and I need to move them here.
This is no problem for shell/FTP accounts, I just unpack them and I’m good to go. I cannot, however, find a way to get the maildirs to the right places for email-only accounts. I haven’t tried to su to one of the mNNNNNN accounts, but I don’t particularly imagine it would work.
With the number of accounts I need, I could plausably set them all up as FTP, but I do not prefer this solution.
Is there another way?
