I'll assume you mean that you want to move mail that's
already been delivered to /var/spool/mail/<USER>
1. Shut down sendmail on the target machine (to prevent
corruption problems later).
2. Take each /var/spool/mail/<USER> file, copy it to the
target machine and copy it to the corresponding file
in /var/spool/mail/ (append it if the file already exists, of course).
3. Restart sendmail on target.
