Yes, set up another box with a new version of cyrus and spend some time
learning the different inns and out of a cyrusserver.
Then make a script to copy over the mail via the imap-protocol. There
are a few scripts on the net the you may use.
How do you plan to do authentication? Expect sasl to be the part you
might have the greatest time configuring.
