No conversion needed. Rmail uses movemail to move files from your inbox
to the Rmail file, and if the GNU Mailutils version of it is installed,
it will use that. The GNU version of movemail supports maildir out of
the box[0].

What I do beforehand is sync an IMAP folder using offlineimap into a
local maildir file, which is then read by Rmail using movemail, as
detailed in the originally linked page.
