In Zentyal (Usermanagement) try to reassign the mailbox to the user...
Maybe there is an option to do this "for masses", I only had to do this for max 15 user...

Thank you for your reply. After comparing the /var/vmail directories on both servers I found that only some of the files in each user directory where being transferred. I had to adjust the options I was using for rsync and now all the files have copied over properly and emails are now working on new system.

Thank you again for taking the time to reply and offer guidance.
Doug.
