Hi Experts

We have a qmail mail server, which is dated and very fragile. I looked for alternatives and found iredmail the best suitable solution for us. We are interested in buying Prop version of iredmail and we want that all our existing mailboxes should come to new server with minimal downtime(we have 500-800 accounts)

We want to know can you provide both setup and migration service and what will be its cost and also What server spects will be best for uS


Thanks

Migrating from qmail to iRedMail (Postfix) should be VERY easy, because qmail stores mail messages in Maildir format, that means you can simply copy mailboxes to iRedMail server, just make sure the maildir path stored in SQL/LDAP is the same as path of mailbox on file system.

Some users reported their migration in our online support forum, it's easy. Why not try to migrate several mail accounts on a testing/virtual machine first?

Hi,
we have just migrated ca 6000 accounts from our old mailserver without any disrupt for users.
If you are interested in details just PM me. Although I do not think it's VERY easy. We have been preparing migrating scripts and tests for ca 1 workweek.
