On the postfix side of things you can probably configure the mail
addresses controlling future deliveries to do whatever you want.
There are many options and the details will depend on what you have
and what you want.   Already-delivered mail messages are no longer
controlled by postfix.   There are programs to move messages from one
imap account to another if you need to move between servers or server
types.  Imapsync will do one account at a time, given the servers,
logins, and passwords.  I think the cyrus tools have something to move
all accounts.
