move postfix mails from server to another postfix server


i've a big issue with postfix, i've to move a lot of mails (approx.23000) from one postfix server to the new one.

it does'nt where the mails are located in the future, that means it is no problem for the user (but for me) if they find there old mails in a new additional folder...

can someone give me a hint or maybe a little bit more information how to handle this issue??

thank you all!!

I'm thinking you may need to ssh from the old server to the new on, then just move the mail manually.

yes, of course - how to move is not really the problem.

unfortunately the postfix filestucture is not really clear for me.

there are folders A,B,C,D ... in these folders are some files, but i can't see the messages in.
