migrate mail from Ms Exchange to Linux

I need to migrate mail from an exchange server to linux mailserver running a courier-imap mail store.
My current approach will be to use to

1. Dump the username and passwords from Active directory on the Ms exchange server into an LDIF file

2. Install a postfix, courier-imap, ldap mailserver

However i am not too sure on how to move users mail from the exchange server to the new imap mailboxes

I have searched for similar posts but most have been unanswered.

Why not get the new server setup, then use an imap mail client to migrate the mail from one server to the other..
Looks like these guys get the servers ready, then have the users move their own mail..

Also found an imap migration tool but I haven't looked at how it actually works..

There are also commercial options that may work...
