I have a number of email accounts I wish to "merge" - They are on the same dovecot server - is it as simple as copying the cur folders contents (the email files) to the account I wish to have them in or is there another process which considers the account database?

Is this possible?

Yes that is the easiest solution. But you can use dovecot sync too.

More info about that:



cur folder implies that's you're using Maildir type format. Thus, copying the files will suffice.
