Migrating email accounts from a cPanel hosting environment to Mail-in-a-Box
Part 1: Pregame
Part 2: Copy credentials
- Send a mass email to all of your account holders, letting them know that you will be migrating their email accounts to a new server. Send them the instructions from MiaB control panel for connecting to your MiaB server from their mobile/Outlook/Gmail/etc, if applicable. Also, send them a link to the new webmail address. Be sure to give adequate advanced notice (several days, if possible). Advise them to not change their passwords during this time (their passwords will be preserved during migration).
- Create a new "test" email account in the MiaB control panel for your domain. This will let MiaB set up the DNS records needed for the domain.
