How to move Emails from one cPanel to another


New Member
Moving an email account from one cPanel server to another is pretty easy if you have a got bit of knowledge of cPanel and FTP.
1. Create an Email account on the New Server
First, you must create a new email account on the new server as they exist on the old server. To do this, you must go to cPanel and click the Email Account option.

2. Download Emails from the old server
Next, connect the old hosting account Via FTP and then download your email-related directories and files. After establishing the FTP connection file, navigate to your hosting account's root directory.

You will find a directory structure now in that you must find the mail option, as all the Emails are under the mail directory. When you drill down you will find a directory structure. Now you just have to download everything under the mail directory.
3. Move Emails to the New Server
Now you have disconnected the old server and connected to the new one via FTP. Then navigate yourself to the mail directory to the new server. Now you just have to upload everything you downloaded from the old mail directory to the new one. This will copy everything to the new server.

Once all files are uploaded and done, verify that old emails have indeed moved into the new email; you can check that by login into your new mail account.
