You cold manage authorization using some database mechanism, where you 
could have multiple users; however you would have to separate 
authentication and autorization then. There would be one main problem for 
which I don't known any solution now: you can't grant access to users in a 
different realm; and your old users are in the servername realm, your new 
ones in their own domain's.

Another possibility: perhaps Perdition or some other IMAP proxy can help? I 
don't use it yet, but it has some nice options, e.g. it can present 
accounts on different servers on one frontend. So perhaps it has some 
features that can help you.
