[clug] Converting mailboxes to IMAP

Hi Peoples,

I've just upgraded one of my boxes running Redhat 9 to Fedora Core 2.

One of the differences is that, rather than the simple pop3 mail system
I served my family's Windoze boxes with, Fedora only provides pop3 via
the Cyrus IMAP mail system.

I've worked out how to create the mail accounts under Cyrus IMAP and
feed the IMAP mailboxes via postfix, but my problem is that I have a few
mailboxes in the old format living in /var/spool/mail.

There must be a 'conversion' tool but I can't find any documentation for
one. I can always re-forward the mail to my users (everyone else at home
who only use Windoze to read their mail), but surely there must be a
command like

	feed_the_imap_server < /var/spool/mail/jack
	rm /var/spool/mail/jack

Can someone point me to the right tool?

Thanks in advance
