Fetchmail / Mail queue empty

I have rent a new server and was now moving the emails.
I have used fetchmail and saw, that the mail queue was full of my mails.
the old mails where deletet from the old server.

I configured the new domain, set up the mail server and the queue goes slowly empty. but the emails are not received.

i found much entries like this:

are they removed?

Found emails under /var/mail/getmail but how to move them to the mailboxes

the mails in getmail are only from Mail Delivery System
The problem is, that I fetch emails from mail@domain.tld and will send them now into the same
error is:

Action: failed
Status: 5.4.6
Diagnostic-Code: X-Postfix; mail forwarding loop for mail@domain.tld

are the mails now lost?

are the mails now lost?
If you selected to remove the mails on the old server by fetchmail then I fear that the mails are lost if you or your provider do not backup emails.
