My recommendation is that you use our API to script all of the actions that you would take in the control panel, ie:

  • The creation of new mailboxes on the destination account
  • The deletion of the email addresses on the original account
  • The deletion of the domains on the original account
  • The creation of the domains on the destination account
  • The creation of the email addresses on the destination account

Once that's done, you can use imapsync to copy existing mail from the old mailboxes to the new mailboxes.

Hope that helps!
