Topic: Are emails stored in mysql?

Hello all, I'm about to migrate to another server, but I am worried about my user's existing emails.  I know all of the accounts are stored in the database called vmail, but are the emails stored in there as well?  I set up everything through mysql.  So I'm planning on just doing a mysqldump of vmail.  Will that work?

can you help me out?  Thanks in advance!

Mails are stored on file system, it's /var/vmail/ by default.
