mail server migration: howto deliver locally AND forward mail to new server


Can this be done? A company is currently running a postfix mail server. They got a new server and, while the users are migrated, they need to have the messages delivered on BOTH servers.

I thought it could be easily done in postfix: deliver locally AND forward mail to new server, but all solutions I found would deliver the messages in just ONE place.

Is there another way of doing this? any ideas? TIA,
