    You can indeed copy the mail by moving the mail files from your old to new one from "/home/old-user/mail". The way you would do it is to create the mail accounts on the new account through cPanel. Once they have been created, you can copy the mail files from each account on your current host to the same place on the new.
    ********But you can't access to account via the old user name and password. :(

    If it is for only a couple of email ids, then use the Horde Fetchmail option.
