You may have some imap server accessing those files, in that case use IMAPSYNC.

QMAIL mostly uses maildirs (a directory with a cur, new & tmp sub directory) containing the messages. (Each message in a separate file)
So searching for maildir might deliver more like the reference below from the zimbra site.

Note that qmail CAN deliver all mails into a single large file like sendmail does. So you have to check your config.

Various migrations are described here:

The problem is first what method to use, what format IS your old mailbox [mbox, maildir, other] , where are they? [ directories ]
---
let's assume it is a maildir...
Take this: http://wiki.zimbra.com/wiki/Maildir_to_zmmailbox_with_bash

Look at the code and add your own variables for [ head of script ]:
# base folder where msgs will be imported
BFOLDER="old-mbox"
ZMMBOX="/opt/zimbra/bin/zmmailbox"
BDIR=$(pwd)

If you then run the script it will tell you what it intends to do, you can then press enter to continue or ^C to abort...
Please read the script....
