In a similar situation i find some good tips for user account
migration in this tutorial:

Beside /etc/MailScanner folder you need  the files you modified (ex:
clamd.conf; /usr/lib/MailScanner/*.* ; etc.) . Other files may be
required for MailWatch, spamassassin and associated programs (
databases, configs, custom rules, etc)
