Question Migrating to new server

Hey folks,

I'm just wondering.

I'm migrating my old server to the new server.

I've created a few websites en mailboxes on my new server.

eg. website1.com and website2.com

On domain is already pointing to my new server (website1.com)
I'm preparing website2.com to migrate. (domain is not pointing to the new server yet)
So what did i do.
I've created a mailbox equals to the old server.

I'm using mb2md tool to convert the mailboxes.
So i did

user@server:~> ./mb2md.pl -s /tmp/mailbox1 -R -d /var/vmail/website2.com/info/Maildir
After running this, i can find all my mails in the /var/vmail/website2.com/info/Maildir/cur folder.

okay, that worked, so i surfed to my server http://www.server.com/webmail
Logged in with info@website2.com, everything works, BUT i can't see all my imported e-mails.

So, i did another test.
I've imported all the mails to my website1.com

user@server:~> ./mb2md.pl -s /tmp/mailbox1 -R -d /var/vmail/website1.com/info/Maildir
once again is surf to my server webmail http://www.server.com/webmail

Logged in with info@website1.com

What did i found?
All my mails are imported.

so my question is
Is it possible that i can't see my mails when i'm logging in to my website2.com webmail when my domain isn't pointing to my new server yet?
Or is there another explanation?
