My first guess would be the users have created new mailboxes "On My Mac" rather than on the server.  Have you verified that their folders are, in fact, on the server?

Our users use mail for leopard, we've been finding that users machines store far more email than our server. They're not using any different IMAP/SMTP servers than ours, for example one user has stored over 3500 emails, but only 300 of those are stored on the server. The others are only stored on his machine.
Any idea what'd cause this -- or how to resolve it? We're using 10.5 with (and such migrations 10.3 -> 10.4 -> 10.5)
Mail stores email in .imapmbox format as opposed to CGP storing it in .maildir so we can't easily copy the files back to the server ....
