Ok, now to work out the precise method (config for the target server and
dsync command) to use to perform the migration from the old server to
the new one, converting to dbox (s or m, depending on how the other
thread discussing this turns out).
I'll update the old server to 2.2.10 tomorrow morning so they're both at
the same version.
So, assuming both servers are running 2.2.10, with
mail_location = maildir:~/:INDEX=MEMORY
mail_location = sdbox:~/sdbox
mail_location = mdbox:~/mdbox
After reading and re-reading:
I'm not so sure...
First problem - apparently it can only be used one user at a time? And -
do you have to actually know the users password too?
If so, then this probably isn't going to be easier, and maybe even
harder than just rsyncing everything, then slowly converting each user
one at a time.
