That will not work for this particular migration. They need two
separate systems for 6months as they test the new and be able to use
the old one at any time.

That is why qmail tap looked ideal.

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
 - 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.
