Convert email data to Qmail?

    HI all

    Recently, I moved some customers from Ensim server.

    To transfer email datas, what do I need to do?

    I believe Ensim uses sendmail.

    Email data is one big file.

    but Qmail is seperated in it's own directory.

    /var/qmail/mailnames/domain name/user id/MailDir/Cur ?

    but sendmail is /var/mail/userid@domain

    Is there any tool for it?

    Thank you

    One more way to migrate mailboxes

    Hi, if you just want to convert mailboxes from mbox (sendmail, ensim) to Maildir (qmail)...

    I have used mb2md.pl, a perl script that uses mbox2maildir, and it is available in plesk:

    1 - Copy mbox files to /var/spool/mail

    2 - Create users with the name of mbox

    3 - for each mbox: su - user

    4 - for each mbox: '/usr/local/psa/PMM/mb2md.pl -m'

    Then you will have the Maildir in /home/user/Maildir
    You can change your destination directory by adding '-d destdir'
    For more options, just look inside mb2md.pl.
