Default 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:
Feb 17 16:12:24 ns4004936 postfix/pipe[14741]: BE51E478A068: to=<simonis@***.com>, relay=dovecot, delay=0.07, delays=0.04/0/0/0.03, dsn=5.4.6, status=bounced (mail forward$
Feb 17 16:12:24 ns4004936 postfix/cleanup[14544]: D087B478A06F: message-id=<20130217151224.D087B478A06F@***.net>
Feb 17 16:12:24 ns4004936 postfix/bounce[14545]: BE51E478A068: sender non-delivery notification: D087B478A06F
Feb 17 16:12:24 ns4004936 postfix/qmgr[8136]: D087B478A06F: from=<>, size=5489, nrcpt=1 (queue active)
Feb 17 16:12:24 ns4004936 postfix/qmgr[8136]: BE51E478A068: removed
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?

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.
