If you decide to use mysql, I'd consider using http://qmailtoaster.com/.
It's a very nice set of packages. You could be up and running in a few
hours (sans migration). There is also good community support.

You mean CDB is way faster, right? if not, can you provide some

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 that’s 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,

I've been given the job of migrating one of our existing Vpopmail
servers accross to a new machine. I have successfully installed the
latest version of Vpopmail on the new machine, but I have some
questions about the next part of the migration. The current server
has just under 5000 domains and subdomains and each of those has
about 3-4 users each.
What is the process for migrating from one Vpopmail install to
another? Can I just recursively copy accross all of the files under
'/home/vpopmail/domains'? And if so, is there some command I have to
run after the copy accross to re-index the directories or Maildirs?
The authentication system used is just the default 'CDB' file format
on both of the servers.
Another, related question is that I'm trying to find out the version
of the Vpopmail that is installed on the old server, but am having
some trouble. I've tried running some of the programs under the
'/home/vpopmail/bin' directory with the '-v' and '--version' flags,
but was unable to get a version number.
