Re: [expert] Transfer mail from uw-Imap - Cyrus Imapd ?

2003-07-03 Thread Joerg Mertin
Hi Luca,

yes - imapxfer seems to exist in the old Utils package - however - the 
mailutil is the replacement for all the tools in the imap-utils archive.
However - even impaxfer does not work :( Tried it with all possible vars ...

Guess I'll have to do it by Hand *snirf* ;)

thx anyway  Cheers

	Joerg

I just downloaded imap-utils.tar.Z from http://www.washington.edu/imap/ 
and imapxfer is still there

servers, and not with cyrus-imap servers - at least - for the writing 
part ...


As it seems not everybody has been successful in using it:

 Hi Folks,

 just a request. While I have a Server with loads of mails using the
 default Mandrake Imap-Server (uw-imap), I was wondering what would be
 the easyest way of migrating the Mails to the new Server - Cyrus Imap.

 Anyone got a Hint on where to look for ?

I think there is no easy sollution. Try to run both servers parallel and you 
can copy every mail from one server to the other.


 Thx  Cheers

Yeah - tried that already. I have about 35 Folders and I didn't find a 
Client that copies folders correctly under Linux :( from one Account to 
the other one. Right now - I have to create manually the accounts on the 
Targate (cyrus) server, and then copy the content over ... :(

Anyone else got an Idea ? Something like: cp -aRv source target
for Imap would be great ... ;)
Thx  Cheers

if you can manage to have access to both servers, imapxfer, that comes 
with UW-imap utilities, should do the job fine (beware, I never tried 
it, but folks on the cyrus list say it works fine and it will preserve 
your flags).
You'll need UW-imap sources to compile it (don't know if you have to 
compile them first or it is enough to have them around).

Beware: that covers cyrus imapd 1.5.x and it's pretty obsolete now. For 
example, cyradm was tcl based then, it is perl now, so the scripts won't 
work.
Someone adapted those scripts to perl, but you'll have to google for them.
