Migrate Email with mbsync

Just wanted to boost this blog post as it greatly helped me migrate emails from Luke Smith’s emailwiz script to Modoboa (more on that in a future post).

Here are some things mbsync(In package managers, mbsync is often installed through isync.) complained about:

UseIMAPS is deprecated, I simply left it out and it worked ok.

For accounts with subfolders (Archives, Archives/2020 etc.) I used:

MaildirStore me-local Path ~/Mail/me Inbox ~/Mail/me/INBOX +SubFolders Verbatim
Code language: Diff (diff)
