Email import tool
It would be a great idea to be able to import mail for individual email accounts via POP3 from other servers.
This would be great for customers migrating to you so that they can keep all their email.
Would just need fields such as:
Thank you for your input. We will consider this functionality in upcoming releases, if it will be popular.
Everyone, please continue voting for this feature if you consider it important.
If this is going to be build in it should be possible to select what mails to put from folder to which folder.
e.g. "Sent items" to "Sent", "Posteingang" to "Inbox", or "Inbox\Posteingang" to "Inbox", etc.
POP and IMAP should be possible.
Good Idea... Some update?
You can add IMAP to that of course.

I would suggest this be done with IMAPSYNC (https://github.com/imapsync/imapsync) instead of POP3 because POP3 won't pull sent messages however IMAPSYNC can sync all folders.
It would be really helpful with external accounts.
Any status update?
This would be an immsensely helpful feature for adaption of the Plesk Panel.
One of the main gripes we have with the current way of migrating mail from another provider to us is that we have to do it "manually" for every mail account.

i think that will be good. now we use Imap synch that works very well but is very manual, i spent a lot of time when i went to backup a email account from a customer that has coming from another host.
at this day is more and more often customers that only use webmail...

Mail Enable has this funcionality and it´s awesome, when an account is created, all mails from older hosting company is imported into plesk mailbox.
Will be great if this funcionality is available in Plesk Linux.

Look into imapsync for linux. That will do the trick for now.
I understand this could be done via an email client, but integrating this functionality into Plesk would make it much more streamlined.
Gmail currently has email account import functionality. Doing this for Plesk would be fantastic!
