Yes, I did that some years ago. Just create a working Dovecot installation
and then copy the Maildirs (with correct permissions/owners etc). They
probably have some additional housekeeping files from Courier, I believe
Dovecot even can use some of them, but anyway they do no harm.

I am new here and I need your advises. Here is my story:
I have a mail server like this:
- CentOS 5 32 bit (LAMP)
- Postfix 2.3
Courier use maildir to save emails in /home/vmail/<virtual domain>/<user> /
Now I want to build a new system on CentOS 6.4 64bit with postfix,
dovecot and migrate all user accounts and their emails.
I already installed CentOS 6.4, postfix and mysql. Also just installed
Dovecot v2.2.4 from the RPM. Now I am looking into how to
Is there a good instruction on how to do this kind of migration?
I still prefer using the maildir system. If I just copy all users email
from old server to new dovecot user maildir, will dovecot see these
mails (and sub-folders) ? Do I need do anything extra?
Thanks in advance.
