the answer is 2x yes. We did exactly that a few years ago - (cyrus 2.4.16)
settings in imapd.conf
# the domain for old "domainless" mailboxes
If i remember correctly, we had to switch to "unixhierarchysep: yes"
before enabling virtdomains. (we wanted to support mailboxes in the form
firstname.lastame at company.com). That was a bit of pain, some users had to
reconfigure their mail clients. I am not sure if virtdomains work without
And just for record this is combined with sasldb auth backend. Old accounts
are in form user at short-hostname, new accounts are full email address.
However, please test the transition on a test machine first.
