Hello Digital Ocean, I’ve been using DO for my personal projects for the past 8 months, and it’s simply awesome. I’m willing to commit and take the big step of moving all my clients websites and databases from Bluehost (shared) to several droplets on DO. I’ve been reading the tutorials and stitching together a plan on how to initiate the moving process and make it happen without data loss or severe down time.
One thing that is really bugging me a lot (probably because i’m a noob when it comes to linux administration) is how to efficiently transfer existing email accounts and messages from the shared hosting to my DO droplets. and how to automate (or at least facilitate) the creation of new email accounts and inboxes.
TL;DR How to create, configure email accounts and transfer existing messages to these accounts, and is there a script that my clients can use to create new email accounts.
Thank you very much :)
