Here is an excellent list of tools (http://www.athensfbc.com/imap_tools/) for migrating mail server info.

I have used the imap.copy with great success.

Postfix doesn't store messages, the IMAP/POP server will do that. It may be Dovecot, Courier, etc.

I'd use imapsync to move the data itself if rsyncing the backend data structures isn't a viable option...
