Plesk to cPanel Migration if you *don't* have SSH access

    Hey there! There isn't a way to use the automated Transfer Tool system without SSH. You'd need to manually move the data, and we do have a guide to performing this work here:

    Hi @cPRex, and thanks so much for the reply. The article you post is somewhat useful and now leads to a new set of questions and two comments. First comment: - The article fails to mention IMAPSYNC. The article seems mostly focused on raw file based migrations which is useful, but nevertheless, what if it's a foreign format? *** - Does anyone in the community know if Plesk uses Mbox or Maildir format, and if actually copying these directories across will mean the users will "just show" in WHM? - Any idea what to do with passwords? Does Plesk encryption match WHM encryption? Surely it must, if the Transfer Tool with SSH works. But how to copy those? We have 100 mailboxes to migrate and asking our client to share 100 passwords for IMAPSYNC sounds a little bit unprofessional. *** Last comment: I find it slightly ironic that WHM doesn't have a better Plesk import, since both are owned by the same parent? Or maybe I'm missing something?

    IMAPSYNC is a great tool, but it's not something that's made by cPanel so we don't talk about it there. We do have a support article about it here:
