That's not the goal.

There are 5K users and about 8 support staff total. User training is 
out of the question, beyond a pop-up window in the webmail client 
that says "your old mail is in the folder called X" where X is a 
folder pointing or proxied to the old server (UW IMAP).

Both pass off authentication to AD. Since the proxy approach doesn't 
look practical I'm leaning towards modifying the webmail client to 
re-use credentials and copy over messages to the new server.
