Is there a good way of transfering an IMAP directory structure and their emails to GMail? (imap)

I moved from my own IMAP server to Google Apps Business earlier this week and I'd need to transfer a ton of emails. I can't seem to find a good way of doing it.

I thought it would be possible via POP3 but how could I keep the directory structure?

Any suggestions are welcome.

Thanks and have a nice day!

Setup both inboxes then simply right click the email and paste into the new inbox – Ramhound Jul 10 '13 at 23:53

All I had to do is simply drag and drop the directories from my imap first account to the gmail one and it worked using both OSX and Outlook.
