First off, I'd suggest using rsync if you can for the file
transfer. That way, you can very easily pick up an interrupted
transfer. --exclude=.Trash/ is your friend. Once you have
the transfer done, script a rename of the per-user folders
and chown of the files as per your username mapping file.
Secondly, are you really sure you don't want the /new and /tmp
Maildir folders? They'll probably be empty, but it's better
to be safe than sorry.
