Export message to new server

Post by alvgarci » Mon Oct 14, 2019 2:29 pm

Hi, I have MailEnable installed by default in a VPS. That's VPS has some issues so I buy another VPS (GoDadddy).
I manually install MailEnable an create all domains and postoffice.

So today I have two instances of MailEnable working. I want to move all old mails *.MAI to the new server. I found some step to migrate the whole MailEnable or a postoffice, but I already create everything, just need the message.

If I copy and paste from one server to another, would work? MailEnable recreate everything?

Hi,

Yes you can copy the *.mai's from the old server to the new server. After you have copied the message files to the relevant destination folders review the following article and execute the command so that a _change.dty file is copied to each mailbox folder. This will force an index update then the user navigate to each folder which will include all the messages you copied.
