In my experience mailutil handles this fine.

I've had excellent results with mailutil, as suggested earlier by Ken
Murchison. I used it for the original migration from MDaemon3 on WinNT
over to the shiny new Cyrus box (and what a pleasant change, too...). I
found it very good, and it made my migration quite simple.
On the other hand, if you're moving from Cyrus 2.1 to 2.2 is it possible
to simply copy the mail spools and configdirectory across?
