Thank you
If you have a maildir system, you can copy the mails simply in the maildir of another account, maybe you have to change tho owner too.

If you have mbox files, make shure thet the account that shall receive the mail has no mails inside, then copy the mbox file from the root user over the (empty) mbox file of the other user. It is a good idea to stop postfix while you are doing this
