Ah, it's about the vault-specific files, I recognize now. :*)

Another way to do this is simply --init a new vault from the new mail
server and *then* copy the tree of the old servers' vault over the new
vault's tree. At the next backup, dirvish should simply use the copied
tree as reference for the next backup image.

I did a similar "vault hacking" to split an existing vault into two by
initializing two *empty* vaults and then hard linked the respective
parts of the old tree into the two new trees via cp -al.
