    Moving mail from old sendmail queue into new postfix server


    I had problems with a mail server going down and eventually got a new server running.


    My question is, can I move the mail that was in the sendmail mqueue and was not getting delivered into the new server running postfix and put it into it's queue for delivery now?

    Any help is greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

    Got It!

    Sorry to reply to myself, and to post questions that I then later figure out. But I was able to get the mail into the new system. I got the old sendmail to work as a redirect type of system and pass all of the mail into the new system.

    I used these lines in the sendmail.mc file to get in to relay the mail off the the other server. I also had to remove the lines telling it what my domain was so it stopped trying to keep the local mail in the sendmail system.

    define(`MAIL_HUB', `server.domain.ca)
    define(`LUSER_RELAY', `server.domain.ca)
    define(`SMART_HOST',`server.domain.ca)

    Hope this helps anyone else with a similar problem.

    Later,
