Think of real post mail where either mail comes to your residence or a mail drop off location. DreamHost has switched to the "mail drop off location" where separate mail servers recieve and store mail. However you can still get mail dropped off at your "residence" if it is specifically addressed to it: email@example.com
The simplest way to transfer messages from one mailbox to another (especially if the destination is IMAP) is to install a mail client like Mozilla Thunderbird that can setup multiple accounts so that you can just drag messages and folders to the IMAP destination account using your mouse!
Secondly, mailutil is available! If DreamHost doesn't have it installed already, install it yourself to your shell account.
