This article describes two methods of migrating users from MailEnable to Axigen: automatic and manual migration.
To exemplify we shall use the following scenario: MailEnable is currently the main server for domain example.org and you want to migrate users from MailEnable to Axigen. The following two methods, automatic and manual, will migrate firstname.lastname@example.org from MailEnable to Axigen. The MailEnable server IP address is in our case: 10.0.239.178, the IMAP service binds on port 143 and SMTP service on port 25. Automatic Migration
1. First define example.org domain in Axigen from Webadmin -> Domains & Accounts -> Manage Domains.
2. Then enable migration for all accounts from Webadmin -> Domains & Accounts -> Edit -> Account Defaults.
3. Enable and configure automatic migration on the domain level from Webadmin -> Automatic Migration. The IP address must be enclosed between brackets: [X.X.X.X]
4. When automatic migration is used no other users should be defined except for the postmaster account
5. The migration process starts when email@example.com first logs in. In this case the user will log into the Webmail account. He could also use another email client.
7. After firstname.lastname@example.org is authenticated the account is automatically defined in Axigen and messages are migrated.
Manual migration is performed using the CLI interface. This method requires that the user is previously defined in Axigen and the password of the account to be migrated
1. Define the domain in Axigen from Webadmin -> Domains & Accounts -> Manage Domains
2. Define the user to be migrated from Webadmin -> Domains & Accounts -> Manage Accounts.
3. Log in as admin to the CLI interface using telnet
telnet "Axigen IP address" 7000
<login> user admin <password> "admin pass"
5. Go to domain context
<#> update domain example.org
6. Issue the migrate command to begin the process or type HELP for more details
