I would not use CDB just my point of view. Go to mysql way faster and better
for all those domains you got. I used rsync on my server when I moved over
to the new one as long as you got the same userid (vpopmail) you should be
good. The question is do you have users email on your server or do they pop
that? If they pop3 it that¹s easy by using learn password make sure they use
that for the first time which sets their password to what they have now
(pop3) as far as I know does not work with imap.
Just my 2 cents,
