Rsync would work fine.  Everything you need should be in the ~/Mail directory, 
so it's pretty straightforward.  There are a lot of ways to get there, so 
it's hard to say which is the best.

I have a nightly backup script that has this syntax at its heart:

  rsync -uax --delete $source_directory $backup_directory
