I am migrating my iMial server to a new platform, but all I see is the 1st token domain that i have to list during set up. Here are my steps

I export the iMail registry key (includes all of the virtual domains) that are in HKLM/
I Also Emport the SMTPD32 key as well

I import it those into the new server
The new server is 2008 R2 and the old server is 2003
I copy the iMail folder verbatim from the old to new server
I Then run the installation and point it to the folder that was copied from the old server so that all the paths are identical(due to reg keys)
After installation I reboot the server.

The problem is, the only domain listed in iMail now is the one token that you have to list during set up. I checked and the registry keys that were imported are all there, which list all of the virtual domains. I guess there must be a registry key generational difference between 2003  and 2008 server. I have successfull done this before but between 2 identical OS (2003) not from 2003 to 2008. Can any shed some intelligent light on this please?

Thanks in advance.

I would think the proper order is:

1. Install on new server, but *don't* start the services.

2. Import the registry keys, and any .ini files from the old installation

3. Copy the iMail folder to the new server

4. re-start the services.

If you install after importing the registry, the installer may over-write the reg data
