I would like to know what the best solution is to move imap emails from one server, to another. Both my sevrers do not support any migration tools. I was told to download it to my local mchine using imap. Then using th eother server i lost all emails when it was up. Could anyone give me a good option to push download the email files an dpush them to the new server?

Just use thunderbird, and copy each folder from one server to the other, I think.

Use IMAP and a sync or migration tool. If you choose to use IMAP, I believe the question has already been answered at Super User. See Transferring lots of messages between IMAP accounts.

Anther option is trying to migrate one [possibly proprietary] database to another. There's no need for that since the IMAP protocol abstracts away the application details like a database schema.
