What i did was...

old server
- Change TTL values in zonefile to 5 minutes and wait till it is propagated (normally 1 day)
- Create domain and popboxes on new server
- Copy contents from old server to new server with scp (popboxes)
- remove domain and popboxes from old server
- Disable pop access on old server (with vmoduser -p domain.com)
- change DNS settings and MX records for domains to point to new server
- place domainname in /var/qmail/control/morercptshosts on old server so qmail will still accept incoming mail - place domainname:ip_address_of_new server in /var/qmail/control/smtproutes on old server to forward incoming mail to the new server - after dns has propagated remove entries on old server from /var/qmail/control/morercptshosts and /var/qmail/control/smtproutes files.
- Change TTL back to normal

During a window of 5 minutes its possible clients (users) will try to connect using pop to the old server, just tell them to try again later.

Subject: [vchkpw] Qmail Tap tap only incoming mail

Is it possible to make Qmail tap only tap the incoming mail? My
problem is that I am trying to get mail to deliver to two places to
ease the transition to a new mail server. Qmail tap allows that
functionality but breaks down on inter-domain email. The person who
sends it typically gets the mail in the new mail box and the person
receiving it does not get a copy depending on where the names are in
the qmail  tap control file. Is there a way to make qmail tap do what
I want it to do or is there a better solution?
