Yes, convert the inboxes to mbox format. It is fine to have mail be
delivered by the MTA in /var/mail/xxx and then have imap "slurp?" it to
/home/xxx/INBOX when a user connects. The INBOX file you convert to mbx
using mailutil. For example: "su - xxx && mailutil move INBOX
"#driver.mbx/INBOX" && exit".
