After a clean install, I tried to copy all the mail libraries from 10.8.5 to 10.11, but El Capitan Mail wouldn't display the original folder structure.
It just added another, new folder where it dumped all my old folders.

How can I migrate the old structure to the new system?

You should not manually copy folders here, use Migration Assistant instead. It is located in /Applications/Utilities.
