I am trying to migrate from an Apple Mail Server 10.5.6 to KMS 6.7. The only snag I have is that KMS 6.7 has been installed on the same machine as the Apple Mail Server. Is it possible to do a migrate in place or do I need to set up another separate server. I've tried changing the port number but the migration utility (KIMT) insists on using port 143 and it doesn't seem to support Apple Mail Server's username policy.

Can anyone help?

Back in the day I used imapcopy to migrate email from a partially borked OS X Server mail server to KMS. It worked great. It's a Windows app.

Also, you might consider setting up a virtual IP and then binding KMS to that for the migration. That should work.

Less than 10 but their mailboxes are rather large. Some are about 4Gb!

You can use mail.app's Archive feature if you want to go that route. I think you have to archive each email folder individually however.

Thanks for you reply. I did do this to begin with but it's like trying to shoot at a moving target because by the time I have finished they've added more to the mailbox. I suppose I will have to schedule some mail downtime to allow me to complete the project.

I *HIGHLY* recommend stopping email traffic before attempting this migration. Early Saturday mornings are great for this.

Thanks I will bear that it mind. However, they do have a large number of mailboxes or folders within each account so it would be a bit painstaking doing it that way.

That's why there are tools like imapcopy which work great for this. Shut off the firewall/router ports for inbound email, run imapcopy (or imapsync, or KIMT) and when it's done shut down Apple's mailserver. Open ports on firewall/router and email should start flowing again.

even with large mailboxes, copying mail locally won't take too long.
