I try to migrate emails from an ice warp server to zimbra and I use imapsync for it. With the following command I get the error message

--host1 option must be used, run /usr/bin/imapsync --help for help

the command what I try to run

imapsync \ --buffersize 8192000 --nosyncacls --subscribe --syncinternaldates \ --host1 myip1--user1 myuser --password1 mypassword --ssl1 --port1 993 \ --host2 myip --user2 myuser --password2 mypassword --ssl1 --port2 993
  • Try it without the ` \ `s ? – NickW May 17 '13 at 15:51

  • ok I will accept – fefe May 17 '13 at 16:11

Remove the \ from the command, I'd imagine the --buffersize 8192000 --nosyncacls --subscribe --syncinternaldates commands are optional, but the --host is not.


Remove useless:

--buffersize 8192000 
--port1 993 

Also if host2 needs ssl then replace --port 993 by --ssl2
