comment Tool to copy IMAP folders from one server to another
I found it on GitHub released under a "NO LIMIT PUBLIC LICENSE" in June of 2012. It looks like a solid package; probably worth paying for it if it works for a big migration.

comment named stopped logging to rsyslog after logs rotate
Hey, this look like it might just work. I've made the change and will check next Sunday to see if it works. I have confirmed that it's creating that file, so it seems like it will be the correct solution. If it's working, I'll accept your answer for sure.

Nope, only running rsyslog (but it's using syslog.pid as its PID file). Updated question with output of ps aux | grep syslog.

Nope. I've updated the question with one of the rolled logs showing rsyslogd writing to the log file just fine. It's some problem between bind and rsyslogd.
