Due to some reasons I need to move vmail folder to another drive. I tried to do rsync & I was able to copy all the files and structure with same old date and time stamp.
I made symbolic link and new mail flow was fine but problem is, all the mail boxes started downloading old mails again .

Is there any way where I can copy location of the folder without this problem.

Thanks

Did you deleted Dovecot meta files inside user mailboxes? Their file names start with 'dovecot-'.

no, everything is synced using rsync

No idea yet, i guess Dovecot re-generated those files.
I suggest asking in Dovecot mailing list instead to get an answer. Appreciate if you can share your answer here to help others. smile
