    v1 v1  
     1= Transer email addresses to the MFPL control panel =
     3 * Enter all user accounts into control panel. Be sure to create usernames that are the same as the first part of the user's current email address
     5 * Create a map for conflicts (a list laneta usernames that already exist in MFPL so we have to create different ones in MFPL; hopefully there won't be a lot)
     7 * Configure mx1 to allow login by just the initial part of the email address. It must be backwards compatible - so it allows login by both the initial part and the full email address. 
     9 * Configure to relay logins for laneta users to mx1, so any laneta users can ues as their incoming or outgoing mail server.
     11 * Configure laneta's webmail to login via rather than mx1
     13 * Send email to all users asking them to:
     14  * Change to using starttls for imap/pop and sending mail
     15  * Change to loging in with just their username
     16  * Change incoming and outgoing mail servers to:
     18 * Auto create email addresses in the MFPL control panel for each laneta user in the form:
     20 * Create hosting order for on gaspar in the control panel
     22 * Auto create a forwarding address in the hosting order that relays mail from to This forwarding address will be permanent. It will be transparent to the user. 
     24 * Run script on mx1 that searches for all laneta email addresses that have logged in in the last 6 months and do not have an account on gaspar. Notify all users that they will no longer be able to user their account if they don't join by August XX.
     26 * Prepare script that copies all email for laneta users from mx1 to gaspar.
     28 * Ensure no users are logging in directly to mx1 (all users should be logging into
     30 * At this point, all logins are happening on which is transparently relaying the login to mx1. And all email is being delivered to mx1.
     32 * At the cutoff time: change the MX record for to point to gaspar; final rsync of all email from mx1 to gaspar; update to relay logins to gaspar.
