Not on the new server. But on the old server it is an active working 
account. Is it not possible to simply move the /var/spool/imap/user 
structure to the new server and rebuild the databse from there?

I have 14,000 accounts to move. I certainly need some bulk method of using 
the data from the old to the new box. 

The database structure of the new server is different than the old server. 
The new box doesn't understand the old mailboxes file or anything other of 
the .db files.
