Transferring data from one server to another is technically called migration even if it is full website or email accounts or databases. When you perform a full website migration of a cPanel account, you do not need to migrate the emails manually. The cPanel transfer will migrate the email accounts also.

It should be ensured that you do not loss any valuable emails. This is what makes the email migration different from other migrations. Let’s see how the email account transfer is done for both cPanel and non-cPanel accounts.
