Any recomendations on porting email from one server to another?

Doing a server migration and trying to make the new server identical to the old as far as accounts/domains/users etc. Got the DA part done, but trying to snag email (mail messages) as well.

Was pointed to this IMAP App to do it, but for some reason it won't connect to the new servers IP (DNS still points to the in production server).

Anyone have any suggestions? They would be much appreciated. :)

I'm not sure exactly what you are asking but if it is DNS related just use the IP address of the new server instead of it's name. For instance move imap.domain.com to destination 192.168.0.1

I can't see a reason for name resolution in a copying script like that.

cheers,

on second thought....

can't you just copy over the /var/spool/virtual directory? I would just tar and gzip and scp

lol
:D
