cPanel is one of the email hosting solutions that allows you to send emails, manage your email accounts through email clients and webmail such as Mail app, Outlook, Thunderbird by using connection or protocols like SMTP/IMAP/POP.
EdbMails IMAP migration tool migrates cPanel mailbox data to another cPanel mailbox. This migration is required when you create a new mailbox account in an other email provider. It does not matter whether the source server and target servers run on the same or different platforms.
You can create a CSV file with the mailbox details if you have many email accounts and lots of emails in each mailbox to migrate. Browse the CSV file in EdbMails application, select the mailboxes and migrate it to the target server. With this, you can do batch mailbox migration at once.
