First (hopefully last) posting so please be kind!
I'm upgrading a older cyrus imap install to version
2.1.10 on a newly built RedHat 9 box using Squirrelmail as a webmail client
Installation went fine, IMAP and Squirrelmail are working over ssl.
My problem is migrating the old user base from the previous installation
(different physical machine).
I can copy the users data (mailboxes, preferences etc), but I cannot seem to
find a way to 'reconstruct' their email boxes consistently on the new
server. The '-r' option of 'reconstruct' seems to do nothing, I have had to
create each users set of mailboxes manually (eventually sorted out a script
for it), I also have the same problem reported in the mail list archives of
users with a blank in the mailbox name. the cyradm command line will not
accept these (either quoted or escaped) although I can get squirrelmail to
Any assistance with correct approach to migrate users appreciated.
