transfer /var/spool/mail to zimbra

Postby abcpqr123 » Thu Apr 05, 2018 4:50 pm

Dear All,

Currently, we use postfix mail server by using Squirrelmail web client

now we install Zimbra mail server in my office,

but we can't migrate /var/mail/ to zimbra.

So please tell me some method to migrate this type of data.

-- Thank you ,

try imapsync, a tool for migration, copy email from one server/postfix to another server/Zimbra by using IMAP protocol

Agreed, we've been leveraging this tool for many migrations, it's highly configurable and gives you lots of feedback (i.e. good logging).

You just can not copy and paste the /var/mail directory from your current server to Zimbra as both servers mailbox directory structure are not same. You may use IMAPSYNC for migration. Please check below links.
