UW IMAP mailbox compacting

UW IMAP stores inboxes in /var/spool/mail/[username]. When I delete mail from my inbox (using Apple Mail), a copy of the message is left behind in that file, and it gets huge, even though it appears to have actually been removed from my inbox. Is there any way to prevent this happening, or at least to compact it?

Transferring between IMAP mailboxes

I need a way to transfer a ton of old email from an old IMAP account to a new one. Dragging and dropping in both Thunderbird and Apple Mail keeps messing up. Can anyone suggest a tool that's designed for this purpose, or a more efficient method? [more inside]
