Re: copying whole folder trees from one server to another

We just recently finished a migration to a new machine, and used the same
method that Kiarna suggested, except we tarred /var/spool/imap up
completely, instead of doing it user-by-user. We also did the same for our
/var/imap and /var/sieve directories. We were migrating from one machine to
another with identical Cyrus-Berkeley-SASL setups. I don't know how well
this method would work when mixing-n-matching software versions.

Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done and why. Then
do it.
