    Does backing up the database backup the users email? I need to transfer from one machine to another. I would like to take all the email off the current server and put it on another server. Then I want to use the current server as a backup...if something goes wrong I want to just plug it in and I am back in business again. But I need to know how to move the users' email to the new server.

    No. If you're using Maildir, the emails are in each user's Maildir (e.g. /var/www/web1/user/web1_user/Maildir). If you're using mbox, the emails are in the /var/spool/mail directory.

    I'm using Maildir, is there a script or something I can use to move everyone's mail to the new server?

    I don't know of such a script. I think you have to move the Maildirs one by one.
