How to import EML files into Postfix?

Does anyone know how to import EML files into Postfix?

I'm migrating from a shared server that will only let us download our email as EML files to a Linode with Postfix installed.

Alright, I'm stupid. Turns out you just need to copy it directly to the /var/mail directory. EML is just the extension for the kind of file that Postfix already uses.
