To which I reply:

It's interesting -- the old installation was a 2.1.4 install, so I don't 
know there are both a .db and a .msg file for each message.

At any rate, when I looked just now, there were 150 pairs of .db and .msg 
files, and all but one had been flagged as SPAM, so I used bin/inject with 
the one .msg file, and sh*t-canned the rest of the files.

Thanks for the confirmation that that was what I needed to do.
