Can't you just copy them to another directory and move the back one by one?

I am using KMail myself but I am afraid I can't help you. I have some problems 
with KMail myself. Just a few days ago it deleted all the mails in 2002 and 
2003. I hope that is not a feature. It did not touch 2004 mails.

I had a corrupted mailbox a cpuple years ago. Because I did not know what else 
to do I corrected the f..d up headers by hand.
