if local users copy /home/* /etc/passwd /etc/shadow after first making
sure there are no dupes on new system
as for mail - what format is tha mail box in?
maybe as simple as copying /var/spool/something
personally i like to use rsync for this as it keeps perms well if you
ask it to - your tool of choice is your call though
