For each Google Apps user, you should be able to go into their Google account settings and set up an Import of Mail, which will allow you to configure their Google account to POP3 authenticate into the old server and pull the mail from the mailbox on the old server to the Google Apps mailbox.

Of course, that link that rob3369 provided to imapsync looks very nice too. Very useful tool.

I think the google pop3 retrieval only grabs what's in the inbox. If there a sub-folders, that email does not transfer.

I have used imap for subfolders, setting up Thunderbird to access both the gApps account and cpanel account, then move folders manually.
