I just finished conversion from UW-IMAP mbox to Dovecot Maildir using  
only Dovecot's "convert" plug-in.  The plug-in worked far better than  
other conversion scripts that I've tried such as perfect_maildir.pl  
and mb2md.  It made the conversion totally automatic as each user  
logged into their account.


Good luck,
