 Courier-imap is only supporting maildirs; take the advice given and 
use a tool like imapsync or mailutil from uw-imap. For migrating to
cyrus from another imap server it's the only good option IMHO.
You risk that pop3 clients will lose sync and have to download again
messages if they were configured to leave mail on the server.
