I have an ancient machine running vpopmail 3.4.11, and would like to
replace it with a new machine running 5.4.2. I'm running into problems
migrating the accounts, and would like to ask for pointers or help.
I compiled qmail and vpopmail on the new machine, and verified that
the entire setup does work. To migrate the user accounts, I copied the
~vpopmail/domains directory from the old machine to the new one, but I
get authentication errors. (Accounts created on the new machine
authenticate just fine, but not the migrated accounts).
Looking through the vpasswd files, I see there are a few minor
differences in the format, so I massaged the entries for migrated
domains to match, but I still get authentication errors.
If I try to manipulate migrated accounts, I am told "Error: Domain
does not exist." If anyone can tell me what I need to do to get the
migrated accounts to work, I will be very grateful!
