Why would you use offlineimap for this?  Just use an e-mail
client that can work on several IMAP servers at once.  I've done
this with tens of thousands of mails using Thunderbird.  Just
create accounts for both servers and you can move around mails
almost like in a graphical file manager.  Of you should take a
backup to be safe, and don't try this while hooked to a 3G
network :)
