Hi,

When I transfer from Cpanel to directadmin, the customer's outlook downloads all the emails in the inbox again. Why is this happening. There was no problem in transferring from cpanel to cpanel.

Thanks

I think he has POP3 configured with "leave copy on the server" option. And I think it should affect any migration, including cPanel->cPanel:

I searched the documentation but couldn't find a way of exporting packages from cPanel to DA. My cPanel packages are all at root level, so no reseller packages exist. I tried a test account transfer which worked OK, but it didn't bring across the packages.

I'm transferring one big site at 130GB. Does the DirectAdmin server need to have double this space to restore the backup? Currently the DirectAdmin server has 200 gigs.

I'd suggest not including public_html to cpmove backup, and then rsyncing it manually. Alternatively, you may convert the backup to DirectAdmin format on a server having more space, and transfer just DirectAdmin-format backup to this server for the restoration.
