I am migrating from qmail/poppaswd to vpopmail and MySQL. I see that
when I have a user in the database (my first step was to populate the
vpopmail vpopmail table with users from the /var/qmail/poppasswd file)
and mail is sent to that it automagically creates the users Maildir
with folders: new cur tmp and maildirsize.
If I vpopbull a message to all users would that create all of their
Maildirs as well?
I presume that without the maildirsize I cannot enforce quotas.
My original plan was to tar all username/Maildirs on the old system
then untar them on the new and change permissions so they work. But
then the maildirsize will not be there. Can I create the maildirsize
after the users folders are transferred from my old system? Will mail
quotas then work?
Thanks for your pointers.
