It looks like you should really seriously think about hosting mails
using virtual domains. If you use virtual domains, you can just copy
/etc/shadow to the new machine and tell Cyrus/Courier/[whatever] to
use PAM to authenticate with the shadow file. Refer to howtoforge.com
for details on virtual domain.

If you are going to go ahead with the /etc/{password,shadow,group}
route, then you also gotta make sure /home/* has the right UID/GID.
