  • You can only Backup if you have less than 5 GB though, so is there a way to do this via FTP? I didn’t see anything in /etc or /mail folders.

  • This technique is excellent, and works quite well. I used it after copying the ‘etc’ and ‘mail’ folders from the old hosting place to the new hosting place (via my favorite FTP program).

    So, transfer the files first, then use the backup/restore technique to copy the forwarders. (Backup usually gives you a ‘gz’ file, so you need to uncompress to get the text file used in the ‘restore’.)

    Thanks! Saved me a bunch of time!
