How many accounts are you talking about? It might be easiest to create the (domain and) accounts manually or with a script on the new host, then copy any emails over from/to the /home/vpopmail/domains/ directory using either scp or rsync.

Hello All,

My names Ron and I’m new to the list. Can anyone point me in the right
direction for migrating a vpopmail domain to another vpopmail server?


I currently have a mail server with a domain of and the
user accounts are in vpopmail using vpasswd.cdb to store user accounts.

I have built a new mail server and this one also uses vpopmail except
that I am using mysql for the user accounts. I have read that to convert
the cdb file to mysql

that I should use: vconvert –c –m

I’m having trouble finding any more information on converting and
migrating to another server.

My questions: What else do I have to do in order to convert my user
accounts and get them over to the new server?

How is vconvert able to insert data into the database? Does it require
further command line instruction to accomplish this?

Any information on how to go about this would be greatly appreciated.
