HI,

I try to copy the vmail1 folder to a NAS using the following command but have some problem, it seems cannot copy the file to the read only folder such as file under /var/vmail/vmail1/domain/user/cur/*, it said "cp: cannot create regular file *********: No such file or directory

cp -a /var/vmail/vmail1 /var/vmail/<<mount to NAS>>

any advice?

Thanks!

Re: Problem on copy vmail folder to NAS backup

I guess mail user is accessing the mailbox, and IMAP server (Dovecot) moves them from this folder to another one.

P.S. It's a good idea to use '-p' option to keep file owner/permission.
