I'm installing Kerio for a user who would like to move his users over from Gmail. The question arose about how to get all of the messages for all of the users into Kerio. Having users do it themselves is not an option, and seems rather unwieldy, but we're a little stuck since the Kerio Imap Migration Tool appears to be completely closed source *and* lacking SSL support.

How do I migrate a user from an IMAP server using an SSL connection?

Note, too, that I don't really need to migrate the user accounts -- it would suffice to create the accounts manually and then just move the messages, one user at a time if necessary.

thanks.

I haven't tested the IMAP migration tool yet, but how about using the POP3 client feature of KMS and get all the mails off of Gmail. The mails need to be in the Gmail Inbox, of course.

You can use imapcopy or imapsync to do this as well.

KIMT is designed to migrate emails between two servers within local network. Using SSL in such scenario could significantly affect migration speed.

Anyway, feel free to raise a ticket at http://support.kerio.com requesting SSL support for KIMT.

Thanks for the feedback --

using imapcopy or imapsync seems to imply that kerio doesn't do anything proprietary in its storage of the mail messages. Is this correct? If so, I may well have my solution right there.

The POP3 client solution is a non-starter, unfortunately, since the entire company uses multiple folders, and we need to move all of them.

Is Gmail using folders? I think they got rid of it and they are using something like tags?

When you hook up a generic imap client to gmail, Gmail's "Labels" become folders.

Kerio doesn't do any weird imap stuff so you can use imapcopy or imapsync. Even the flags are preserved so your read email stays read.

Hi,

Here is a copy of the imapsync bash script I used to move a bunch of users from Cyrus (Mac OS X Server, Leopard) over to Kerio, recently. It has a 2 user example configured - replace pertinent stuff with your setup.

Note the use of --regexflag filters for annoying flags that don't jive and --regextrans2 for moving mail between disparately named folders. Also, the passwords will be exposed in any logs on the machine where this is run, but you can avoid this by using password files, via imapsync.

The script relies upon an SSH tunnel to the remote machine running the IMAP to a local port 9777. This way I could just use LOGIN to authenticate. You can also use the SSL function of imapsync (read its docs). The script ran on the TO machine, the one hosting Kerio.

Imapsync is much more robust than Kerio's tool, but it has been around a lot longer.

Make sure to run imapsync in 'dry' mode first to see what happens, and what flags don't sync right.

Larry
