I followed the same route as Mauricio.
1. I installed H5 from scratch with webmail-install and added the
configuration step by step until the H5 installation worked like expected.
Some settings can be copied from H3, some cannot. But the H3 config is a
good reference, in order to make sure you do not forget someting.
2. The data:
2.1. I copied my running H3 into a virtual machine, upgraded that to the
latest webmail 1.2 aka H3.3
release, see http://www.horde.org/apps/horde/docs/UPGRADING. There is no
need that the installation or features all work, it's all about the
database. In fact, some features did _not_ worked on this intermediate
machine, but the data were severe.
2.2 I copied the H5 install from step 1 into yet another virtual machine,
imported the H3 database, re-ran the webmail-install script, which
migrated the database, then finished with: echo y | kronolith-convert-to-utc
3. Lastly, I replaced the database of the H5 machine of step 1 with the
one of step 2.2.
As you see, I did not upgrade the H3 inplace.
