    Red face [SOLVED] Migration Postifix+OpenWebmail+Mailbox to Zimbra

    Good morning everyone, I am installing zimbra here in the company and to transfer the old server running postfix + openwebmail + mailbox without imap to zimbra, I would like a solution, the old server can not stop the migration must be transparent to the End User. I tried to imapsync seeing some tutorials, but I did not have to install an imap client on the old server, this can influence the service on the old server? I would like to do this in the most automated as possible, because they are more than 1500 accounts. I look back. Thank you.

    If the old server is running in a production environment with a high load on it you should probably use a different machine to run the imapsync on as it can use quite a bit of CPU power.

    Since the old system is running postfix you might be able to setup the users on Zimbra and then rsync over the store, but I don't really know if that is possible.

    Generally the best option when transferring between servers is imapsync.

    if you don't have imap, you can try some other tools which can import from mbox or maildir. I cannot point you directly, but I think I've seen some tools around.

    Good morning, I would do much to inquire what tools I could use. I'm testing some scripts, but so far not getting any success. I look back.

    Morning Maxxer not use the maildir format, but mailbox. Therefore, I would have to first migrate the mailbox to maildir and then they migrate to zimbra. Had seen in some forums about it and saw that after migrating to maildir had no return and could experience failures. So I wonder if there is any solution for my scenario or not.

    Question

    I got it to migrate a user account so now I need to migrate multiple accounts at once and do not have the password for users to see, this migration should be transparent to the User, have some script to help me do this?
