With that approach, you lose all flags and seen state. The mbxcvt
program from UW imap-utils worked fine for us (with a perl wrapper to
handle the fact that we were doing the transition one user at a time via
a proxy rather than all at once and shutting down as well as going
through all the folders automatically), with some minor hacking to
handle the passwords. I have been told that it now supports SASL so you
can use auth plain and proxy as the administrator account rather than
logging in as each user.
