I have only a tiny testcase to comment on, but I recently switched my
mother from a Linux laptop using Evolution to an iBook using the Apple
Mail app.  I presume the latter is the latest version: the machine was
delivered running 10.3.5 and I updated it to 10.3.7 immediately.

Her mailbox resides on my private server, using Cyrus 2.2.8 on a fairly
messy (2.4.20 kernel) Redhat installation.  It's accessed via IMAP over
a DSL connection.

When she switched to the Apple, the first thing I helped her do was
resync her mailbox and take offline copies, which meant that about two
years of mail, including some large attachments, was downloaded.  It
appeared to work correctly.
