Migrating Emails

Here’s couple of email migration tips for cPanel users

Move emails from one domain to another domain 

You’ll first need to create both the accounts. Say: example@domain.com and example@another_domain.com
1 – Access cPanel –> file manager –> mail –> mail/example.com/user (user is the username of the email address)
2 – Click on select all, then click on copy, then enter this path –> mail/example2.com/user ( again, user is the username of the address you’ve recently created)

Move emails from one address to another address

You’ll first need to create both the accounts. Say: user@domain.com and another_user@domain.com
1 – Access cPanel –> file manager –> mail –> mail/example.com/user (user is the username of the address)
2 – Click on select all, then click on copy, then enter this path –> mail/example.com/user2 ( again, user2  is the username of the address you would like to move the emails to)

Transfer emails from one server to another server (POP method)

1 – Connect an email client like outlook and download all the emails from old server through POP connection (You might have to contact your hosting provider for POP settings)
2 – After you have pointed the domain to new servers, change settings for the account and connect to new servers through POP (you should first create the email account in your new server)
3 – You will now have emails from both old server and new servers in your email client

Transfer mail folder to your account (cPanel)

This is possible only when you have access to mail folder in both existing and new servers
1 – Contact your hosting provider and request them to provide you a copy of the ‘mail’ folder
2 – Upload the ‘mail’ folder you have downloaded from your old hosting account here: cPanel –> File manager
3 – Create the email addresses in your new account
4 – Access them through your webmail.
