Moving Mdaemon to new server - 02:36am May 19, 2022 CDT - Wells its been just under a year since I was unable to migrate my working server installation to a new machine. I have since created a new computer and have tried the migration again, with the exact same results.

I have followed every step to transfer the files to the new machine, updated the relevant .ini and .dat files with the paths to the new mail folder location and once again, mdaemon starts and appears to be working, and I can use webmail without an issue, but remote administration works ONLY from the same computer as mdaemon is running on...

When I copy the directory to the new server, shouldnt all the settings you are asking me to verify come across same as they are on the working install ?

Moving Mdaemon to new server - 02:36am May 19, 2022 CDT - I am attempting to move my mdaemon 19.5.3 to a new server (original server was running windows 7, new server is running Windows 10 Pro. I have read the instructions (remove service, deactivate, copy directory, update mdaemon.ini to new locations, update userlist.dat to new locations, install same version over copied directory structure).

I have two issues..
