Move emails from a different server to a new one with different domain

    I've installed ISPConfig in a new debian server. It's already up and running but I want to move emails from an old server. The problem is that I have emails on both servers (old and new) and the new server uses a different domain and therefor different email accounts. How can I accomplish that?

    Thank you.

    imapcopy for example...

    or e.g. in Thunderbird you setup two imap accounts and get mails from old and new server.... and once you have all from the old server, you just select all the mails and copy them over to the new server...

    But imapcopy is better imho.

    There's also a bruteforce version: You could just copy the file in /var/vmail/..... to their according new location on the new server... last time I did something like that it worked but it's not recommended.
