eMail Server III uses Cyrus imap to store the mail. That
is neither mbox or maildir.

The only migration-tools I have seen, is from eMail Server
(and our new server got enourmos problems, when we
used that tool).

All mail-users is stored in a ldap-database and not as users
on the system. I am afraid, you have to enter all users
through a browser-interface :-(.
