Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I was wondering if anyone knows of a way to move a full mailbox from one server to another. We're migrating a site from an Windows server to a linux server. is there any way to export them from the windows environment and import them into the mailbox on linux?

I'm using Plesk 9 on the new server.

Thanks! Troy

What software is running on both sides? –  Brandon Jan 27 '10 at 0:26
    
The answer would be quite different if the Windows side is running the built-in POP3/SMTP services or Exchange. –  Massimo Jan 27 '10 at 1:01

I recommend checking out imapsync. We used it,in part, when we migrated users from GroupWise to Zimbra. The tool is Zimbra's recommended method for mailbox migrations, but imapsync should work anywhere both sides are able to talk IMAP.
