SmarterMail looks to be a Windows-based mail server. SquirrelMail is
not a mail server - it is ONLY the webmail client part of the
equation. The best place to ask this question is probably to
SmarterTools themselves, and the question should be more about if/how
you can migrate your mail store from SmarterMail to a *nix system --
which system that is also matters: if you are running Cyrus on your
new servers, for example, that needs to be part of the question. In
general, migrating mail stores from a Windows environment to a *nix
one will probably be difficult in one way or another, no matter the
software involved. If it's acceptable to get your users involved and
you can have both systems running at the same time (and SmarterMail
supports IMAP), you can have the users do the migration themselves by
setting up their desktop IMAP clients (not a webmail client!) to
access BOTH servers, and just drag and drop their mail from one IMAP
server to the other.
