may be not best solution

- in old server, from /var,  targz "vmail"  folder 
- move targz file into folder where we can wget it, exp "/home/user/public_html/

- in new server, from /var folder, wget archive.tar.gz from old server
- un targz it

I don't test it, but:

Code: [Select]
/etc/init.d/postfix stop && mv /var/vmail/ /home/vmail && ln /home/vmail /var/vmail && /etc/init.d/postfix start

Use this, as Ive tested this with Centos7

service postfix stop && mv /var/vmail/ /home/vmail && mv /var/vmail /var/vmailold && ln -s /home/vmail /var/vmail && service postfix start


you can remove the /var/vmailold at your leisure when you know all is working..

The ideal location would/should be /home/%user%/mail
Will also easily allow email to be included in a user's quota.
(As said a few times in the past.)

I see that for every email something is save here: /usr/local/cwpsrv/var/services/roundcube/temp
so i thing that is not a solution to move only /var/vmail
