Hi Mike,

Apologies for the delayed reply, it’s been a busy few days. Thanks 
very much for the lateral thinking – I wasn’t aware of imapsync, but 
that is a great idea. It looks like it might work well for what I need. 
I’ll post an update once I’ve dug into it and have a solution. I 
think it will also be useful for someone I’m helping migrate mail 
servers, so this is very timely. Much appreciated!
