    Its really easy, you just move the files into the users mailbox. Example:

    mv filename /var/qmail/mailnames/<DOMAIN>/<USER>/Maildir/cur/

    Nope didnt work. The mails shows up in the header of the webmail application but they dont show up in the list.

    The old domain was oldfilesdomain.tld and the new domain is filexx.tld. Is that why I cant see the mails?

    Is there anyother way to transfer the mails?

    Hey atomicturtle, Thanks for your help. So here is what I did. Old Server The mail files are located in /home/username/popaccts/domainname.tld/submission/Maildir/cur New Server /var/qmail/mailnames/domain.tdl/submission/Maildir/cur in both submission is the email address. Is there anything I am doing wrong here?
