I use the Zimbra OSS version, also, and almost recommended it.  You can't just
use the "WebMail" part of it though: you have to pick up the entire MTA/MUA

The individual message blobs are just an email file on disk, so you can
generally just feed 'em back in however you want to reinject an email and all.

However, take a look at the notes on server-to-server migration that they have
in their system, and the tar format exporter, which allows much finer grained
access to the system.
