QmailAgent - Migrating from one NAS to another

Post by Guapo81 » Mon Jan 25, 2021 4:44 pm

Hi all,

I'm in the process of migrating my NAS setup from my TVS-682 to my new TS-h886. So far so good.
One of the last things I'm trying to achieve is to migrate my configured email accounts from qmailagent on the old nas to the new one.

Since there is a QmailAgent share on the NAS where mail and attachments are stored, I thought this would be quite straight forward, but this doesn't seem to be the case.

I installed Qmailagent on the new NAS, this creates the same QmailAgent share.
I configured my gmail account on the new NAS, this creates the exact same folder in the QmailAgent share, with the same subfolders (Mail and Attachments)

After this i stopped qmail agent on both machines and moved all the files from the old qmailagent folder to the corresponding one on the new NAS.
After this I started QmailAgent again and thought that qmailagent would see the new files in these folders, but this does't seem to be the case.

Does anybody now how to achieve this? That maybe Qmailagent indexes these folders again, or do I need to move a DB file also to the new location or something?
Any help is appreciated.
