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:
-Hostname
-Username
-Password
-Port
-Encryption

        It still takes a lot of work to move customers with existing mailboxes from their current provider to servers running on Plesk. Often user email clients are used to get the job done. Verified and auditing the results even takes more time.

        What if you could select an external mailbox in Plesk. Fill in the needed connection and authentication data, select the website/domain within Plesk and just click import. The plugin could import everything and even do some verifications afterwards. When ready the user can click on a release button to enable the mailbox for the user.

        It could be as simple as: https://www.yippiemove.com/step/1/

        Just echoing what Gabriel T said - use IMAPSYNC or at least offer it, I have migrated 100's of GB of email over to G.Apps using it and it has never let me down. The stand out feature of IMAPSYNC is how it handles the many quirks in the IMAP implementations out there, it also can limit messages per second if resource usage is an issue.

        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.

        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.

        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!
