[PLUG] Using saved Maildir with Courier in Ubuntu 8.04

I used to run my own home Courier IMAP server. Then I had major hard 
drive problems, and other things, and now I just use Google Apps for my 

I do have a copy of my old Maildir directory, however, and have now 
copied it onto my new Ubuntu 8.04 server. What I'd like to do is use 
Courier on this new server, and be able to read my old email locally. 
But I'm a little unclear as to what to do after I copy my Maildir over 
from my saved drive. Do I just start up Courier, and try and connect to 
the new Ubuntu server using Thunderbird?

Any clues gratefully accepted.
