comment Copying over E-mail accounts & content from Zpanel to Zpanel
My downvote was because I typed your question into google and got an answer in the zpanel documentation as the first hit. Aside: we don't need a zpanel tag it will only bring us lots of crappy questions just like the cpanel tag does.

We don't care. If it were about the Pi the Raspberry Pi would be the correct place for this question. Please read tour to familiarise yourself with our scope and topicality. Please also read meta.serverfault.com/questions/5586/… where we discussed the topicality of RPi and decided that we do not want questions regarding them. Thanks for understanding.

We don't consider the RPi to be a server within the meaning of Server Fault. The enthusiast nature of the device makes it a better fit for Super User or Unix & Linux.
