The easiest way to migrate emails from one cPanel server to another is using the Transfer Tool which is part of cPanel’s WHM interface. There are times that web hosting companies will disable the Transfer tool to prevent customers from migrating away.

If you are a web hosting Reseller without access to the Transfer tool, or if you are hosted on a shared cPanel account without access to WHM, then migrating e-mails to another server can be a headache.

By popular demand we are providing the best and most reliable way to migrate your emails from one cPanel server to another without having access to cPanel/WHM Transfer tool.

Steps to Migrate Emails from cPanel to cPanel

Step 1 – Create Email Account on Destination cPanel

First step is to create the email account on your destination cPanel account. Assuming you are going to transfer info@your-domain.com from source cPanel, then create the same email account to the new cPanel server.

Click Email Accounts section from cPanel Dashboard
Click Create button to create a new email account in cPanel
Fill-in all details for a new cPanel email account

Step 2 – Backup Mail Folder on Source cPanel server

All email messages can be found within the “mail” directory of your cPanel account. In this step you need to access File Manager on your source cPanel server, compress the “mail” folder and download it. You will use this compressed/zip file later on to restore mails on your destination cPanel.

Access File Manager from cPanel’s Dashboard
Right-click mail folder via File Manager
Right-click mail folder and Click Compress

Select the “Zip Archive” option, then give your compressed file a relative name (e.g. mail-backup.zip) and click “Compress Files”. This will generate a .zip file of your “mail” folder within the home directory of your cPanel account.

Compress mail folder in cPanel File Manager

Step 3 – Restore the Mail Backup File to the destination cPanel Server

At this point you are ready to restore/import the compressed mail folder to the new server.

To do so, login to the destination cPanel account and click “File Manager” as shown below.

Access File Manager on destination cPanel server to import the mail folder backup file

Then, click the “Upload” button and a new page will open where you need to browse your local computer and select the “mail-backup.zip” file which you exported earlier from the source server.

Click Upload button in File Manager
Choose the compressed mail file from your local PC to upload on the destination cPanel server

Once the file is uploaded, navigate back to File Manager tab, right-click on the newly uploaded zip file and click “Extract“.

Extract the compressed file to restore your mail folder to the destination cPanel server

All set! You have successfully migrated all email accounts and mail content from one cPanel server to another!
