I have a cyrus-imapd server running for last five years. The cyrus-imapd version is 2.2. Now I have set up a new mailbox server with cyrus-imapd version 2.3. I need to migrate all mailboxes to this new server. As far as I know I should follow either of the following two methods.
imapsyncto transfer mailboxes
rsyncall mailboxes to new server and then
reconstructall of them on new server
I do not want to setup
rsync followed by
But I tried moving random five mailboxes to new server without following
reconstruct. I did following.
rsyncmailboxes to new server
/var/lib/imap/to new server
And I am able to access those mailboxes without any problem on new server. So can I move mailboxes and corresponding .seen and .sub files directly to new server without following
reconstruct? and what exactly
Note: I am not using any kind of quota on cyrus mailboxes so I don't want any quota figures.
