Jay, we've recently converted some clients' mailservers from mbox to
maildir operation. I used a Perl script named mb2md.pl to migrate all
the client accounts' mail archives.
If having each spool as a directory and post as a separate file in
the directory will help, grab mb2md. It's very well-documented and as
far as I can tell it's completely reliable.
It's also not horribly slow, given the task it has.
