Abstract. Servers are systems that set up to run for years, but it may be necessary to migrate to a new, better server when they have completed their lifetime or become inadequate. In this study, the open-source iRedMail e-mail server has been successfully migrated to another high-capacity physical server which uses an open-source CentOS operation system. Migration is a process that every step has to be very well planned. However, although planning is well done, unexpected errors may occur. For this reason, it is also essential to choose migration time. The experience gained as a result of the study is a guide for the new ones.
