Select or disable a mail server

To select or disable a mail server, perform the following steps:

  1. Select Dovecot or Disabled.
  2. To preserve users’ mailbox settings (for example, subscriptions to mailing lists and message read flags), select the Convert mailbox settings… checkbox.


    If you choose not to preserve the users' mailbox settings, it may result in faster migration between mail servers.

  3. Click Save.
