You can use an imap client to migrate mail folder from Exim to your new MTA.

is your Exim storing mail in form of /var/mail/username ?

Exim can communicate to an Imap clent such mozilla web browser or MS outlook.

Mozilla is great imap client, that you can use to connect to multiple imap server and it free!!

install mozilla web browser and configure mozilla to point to your Exim server through imap then configure mozilla again to point to your new MTA, so that your mozilla is connecting to two MTA at the same time.

Finally copy your inbox from Exim to your new MTA inbox.
