You really want to be able to do more than just creation on each users
top-level mailbox. A user can have subfolders and those really need to
be re-recreated also. This can be done from the information in a dump of
the mailboxes DB. I like to do daily dumps of that DB to a flat file,
keeping something like seven days of history.
