the no such mailbox error is most likely generated because the
mailboxes.db wasn't transfered over..  the cyrus.* files should transfer
perfectly file. but you need to make sure you also copy the mailboxes.db
from the cyrus imap config directory (/var/lib/imap)

Also it is recommended to use 2.2.3 now, (or 2.2.6, but I'd wait until
2.2.7 comes out as there are a few quirks with quota in 2.2.6)
