Hello Gilbert, 

SmarterMail has several built-in options on a per-user basis. 

Email Retrieval

These days it's rare for someone to have, and use, a single email address. That's why SmarterMail's Email Retrieval feature is so great: it allows users to access email from another account directly within the SmarterMail Web interface. This means users can add their Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo! or any other mail account to SmarterMail so that they can receive all of their emails, from a number of different accounts, from within a single interface.
Mailbox Migration

The mailbox migration tool makes moving an account from from an email provider like Office 365 or Yahoo!, or from another email server like MailEnable or Open X-change, to SmarterMail incredibly easy. Depending on whether the provider allows it, Mailbox Migration can import email, contacts, calendars, tasks and notes into a SmarterMail Account.
This option is to use the API to try and automate this process. The API documentation can be found here ( https://mail.smartertools.com/Documentation/api#/reference/SmarterMail.Web.Controllers.SettingsController ). There are calls for both of the above options.

For External Tools, I have seen these used in the past by clients. 

I hope this helps. 

Thank you

Second vote for IMAPSync. We've had mixed results with SmarterMail's tools, but IMAPSync is always perfect.

IMAPSync/IMAPCopy are definitely the way to go when completing bulk migrations. There is nothing better than handing it a list of usernames, and watching it go to work! :)
