We have one person set up with 3 mail accounts, 2 of them are from former staff. I want to eliminate 2 of the mail accounts but I need to do this efficiently. Both mail accounts have large amounts of mail and they are broken up into many mailboxes and sub mailboxes. So moving the mailboxes via a mail client will take too long (plus Mail.app seems to timeout when moving too many e-mails in one operation).

I realize that Kerio Connect has an option to transfer e-mails to another account when you delete an account. But I have the impression that this would put all of the e-mail into the new account's inbox, losing the mailbox organization.

Is it feasible to delta the 2 accounts without deleting the mailboxes and move the mailboxes into the remaining account on Kerio?

When you delete a user and move that user's mail to another account, the mail from the old account appears as a separate folder named 'Deleted user - JohnDoe' or something similar. The mail is not merged into the existing inbox.

That is good to know. If the deleted user's mail is organized into folders is that folder structure retained or does it all go into a single mailbox?

The mailbox folder structure is preserved. At the OS level, it's a simple move of the sub-directory. Doing through webadmin avoids having to shut down the server, and allows Connect to maintain indexes, storage allocations, etc..

just copy whole tree, to subfolder in deferent user folder. Then click reindex user mailbox in kerio administrator. I've done it many times. Also option with moving deleted user data to new user will work.
