I've run until now qmail as MTA, but due to a distro upgrade i had problems with some libraries, so i decided to use kerio.

The thing is that i do not want to loose my mails.
I can recreate users one by one, but how could i import the mails from qmail? The format was Maildir.(with cur, new, tmp directories)

Any suggestions?

If you still have your IMAP daemon running, you could transfer the mails using imapsync application in a snap. Try to google imapsync and you will find a lot of information - probably your distro has it as an optional package to install.

If your maildirs and new kerio install are on the same server you would need to modify the port number of the legacy imap daemon or then the port of Kerios imap service (very easy using the Admin Console) so that they can coexist in peace.

When you have completed the imapsync, you can disable the old IMAP daemon and return Kerios imap service to standard port 143.

Hope this helps.
