Okay. So the company I work with just transferred web servers. I have SSH access to both machines. Without making a FULL cpanel backup, is there a way I can transfer JUST the email accounts from the old to the new? SSH SCP?
The folders and emails are stored in ~/mail and is a standard Maildir format. So if you can recreated the accounts on the new server, you should be able to copy everything over with scp as you suggested:
Then copy/paste the appropriate lines in /etc/passwd /etc/group and /etc/shadow to duplicate the accounts.
Make sure the UID and GID of the copied mails match the new server settings.
