I just realized IF I am reading this correctly, this will backup user preferences ONLY (i.e., user details and preferences, mail filter rules, addressbook entries, SOGo calendar, etc.) but NOT mailboxes!

I am ready to transfer my data from my "old" server to my "new', however, the "old" server has mail in cyrus mailboxes, and the "new" server is using dovecot, and, I do not know how to transfer the actual mailboxes.

Question: How do I export mail from cyrus mailboxes then import it into dovecot?  Thx

The "old" server user ldap for user source information.  I am not using ldap in my "new" server.

I have created samba, openchange users on my "new" server with empty mailboxes, and I have performed the backup discussed below and transferred it (though not restored it or imported it into the "new" server)

I need now to know how to transfer (export/import) the mailboxes.  Thanks, again.

Of course I want to keep the calendar and addressbook entries, as well
as the mail filter rules.

How can I do that?

1) make a backup on the old server with
sogo-tool backup ${BACKUPDIR} ALL
2) shutdown old server
3) move the backup to your new server
4) startup new server
5) restore all data
for USER in `ls ${BACKUPDIR}/*`
	sogo-tool restore -p ${BACKUPDIR} `basename ${USER}`
	sogo-tool restore -f ALL ${BACKUPDIR} `basename ${USER}`

Kind regards,
