Moving email accounts from standalone cPanel account to add-on domain

As a consequence of cPanel's jaw-droppingly greedy decision to change their pricing structure to a per-account basis (meaning that my host has no choice but to increase my VPS fees by 50%, don't even get me started on that) I am being forced to try and merge separate accounts belonging to the same clients, in order to reduce them to below 30.

By merging, I mean deleting the additional accounts, creating add-on domains on the main accounts and moving files and databases there (thanks for all the extra, unpaid work cPanel).

This worked well with accounts where no email accounts were active. Now I need to do the same with accounts where the clients have active email accounts. I need to do this in a fast and efficient manner, which will preserve existing passwords and will cause no disruption to my clients. What's the best way to achieve this?

Thanks
