Very often it's necessary to change usernames during the migration from
one server to another.
Sure, it's easy to write a little script to use different usernames on
host1 and host2.
But consequently it would be necessary to migratione usernamens in ACL-
rules too. Otherweise the whole ACL-setup is broken.
That's nothing we can do with just some parameters, because each
imapsync migration process has to know *all* pairs of old/new usernames.
-A single account will have several ACL-rules for different users.
Migrating ACLs would be easy if imapsync would understand a parameter
And sometimes it's possible to describe all changes by a simple regular
expressions. A parameter like "--userregextrans" would be nice to (for
stuff like s/(.+)@(.+)/\2_\1/).
imapsync should migrate all usernames during the --syncacl-process.
Having that kind of translation-file the parameter "--user2" could be
If no "--user2" is given, then "--user1" is used (same for --
If furthermore --user-translation-file or --userregextrans exists, then
imapsync should migrate the username used for the login (and for ACLs)
automatically from old to new.
