You can convert Maildir to mbox using mutt.  I have been doing that as
needed since moving from Kmail.

mutt -f CMC/ -e 'set mbox_type=mbox; set confirmcreate=no; set
delete=no; push "T.*<enter>;sarchive<enter><quit>"'

That reads messages in the Maildir directory CMC and saves them to an
mbox file called archive.  You can then move archive to where ever it
needs to be for your new email client.
