Moving my clients email accounts

I am planning on moving my reseller account from one host to another. This involves moving my clients over to my new host.

Anyway, no problem moving the sites, just copy them across and change the nameservers on the domains.

However, I'm more interested in figuring out how best to move the email accounts. I don't have many to move, however, one in particular uses imap and I would like for there to be no loss of mail (ie, I need to move all of their server stored emails including any received during the nameserver transfer).

Thanks for any advice.

Are they both cpanel servers? If they are just back them up one by one and download the *.tar.gz and have your new host restore them.

If its cPanel to cPanel migration then all emails will be migrated. If you are using a custom control panel and then moving onto a different one, then you can't be sure about email migration. Best thing will be to download them on your local machine, so you won't loose any emails while migrating across.

Normally hosts do migrate client websites if the source and destination control panel is same.

Simply back up your account and unpack it to the new hosting server, its simple.

if it's not cpanel based migration, you can use outlook for email migration.
