There are two other steps you should do as well to complete the account
transfers:

1. If you used UNIX shell accounts for Sendmail, all the encrypted passwords
are stored in /etc/shadow, /etc/master.passwd,
 or /etc/security depending on your UNIX platform.
See the attachment for an example script how to accomplish this.

2. Convert mbox to Maildir:
Search for mb2md.pl in Google
This Perl script converts an mbox file to a Maildir.

If you use vpopmail it's easy just create a script as a matter of fact I
did it today here is the script:
#!/bin/bash
for i in `cat users`
do
        vadduser $[EMAIL PROTECTED] $i
done

this will set a temp password to their name or if you use the learn
password they must log on with pop and the first time they log in vpop
will set the password on what they have typed. Very Kool,

Subject: [vchkpw] How to transfer Sendmail users to Qmail



Dear All,

I have just installed Qmail, vpopmail and sqwebmail.
I am running Sendmail as my present MTA on a different machine.
Can anyone tell me how to transfer all my Sendmail users to Qmail?
I created Sendmail users under a group popmail users (about 250 users)
There are about 25 virtual domains also in Sendmail for these users.

Please advise me what to do..

Regards..
