Server specific FAQ


What email servers are supported by YippieMove?

YippieMove should in theory work with any server with that follows the IMAP standard. Recent releases of the following stand-alone IMAP servers are fully supported.

  • DBmail
  • Courier-IMAP
  • Cyrus-IMAP*
  • Dovecot
  • IMAP-UW

*If you are moving to Cyrus, you will need to leave the destination folder name blank. The reason for this is that Cyrus uses the root as inbox by default. If you enter 'Inbox' as the destination folder and Cyrus is configured to use the root as the Inbox, you will end up with a folder named 'Inbox' within your Inbox.
