Hello,
I am moving from a qmail / horde implementation to atmail, and have found that the atmail migration script for imap doesnt work very well. So my solution was to manually backup all the email files I needed migrated into zips, and moved them to the new server. I have uncompressed them, and now need to rename them to match the new domain name.

My question is this.. I have tried to use the rename script in ubuntu to rename them and it is not working... how do I bulk replace *urlwww.novarix.net* with *dev.mediagiantdesign.com*?

Worth 500 points.

Thanks,

If you mean to replace www.novarix.net in file names with dev.mediagiantdesign.com:

#!/bin/sh

for i in *www.novaris.net*
do
  mv $i `echo $i | sed -e 's/www.novaris.net/dev.mediagiantdesign.com/'`
done
