We have a mail server running Debian 5.0. It is one year old now but we want to deploy a new server with Ubuntu Server 10.04. The problem is that we want to transfer all the user mails and settings to the new mail-serverl. So all their usernames and passwords should be the same, all their mails should be transferred successfully to the new mail server. In the old mail server we are using Squirrel Mail as frontend, but in the new mail server we are planning to use Round Cube.
How can we achieve this, I am looking for some detailed tutorial or guide to do this and haven't found any on google. Is it possible to do this ?
I am using postfix, dovecot and mbox on the older server and User accounts are stored in /home directory and there is another /home/username/mail directory where the mails are being stored. Please tell me what more information you need and I will provide it. I am using Debian 5 on older server and will be using Ubuntu 10.04 on the newer server. I am planning to use MailDIR instead of Mbox, but if that does not work, I will use Mbox on the newer server too, I just want to transfer everything to the newer server.
