Are there any tricks to this, or is it as simple as creating a rule to forward a copy of every message that arrives on the IMAP account to Gmail?

I see that that would work for all new messages, but what about all the existing messages in various subfolders? It would be a bit of a pain to lose existing flags such as "Replied to" or to manually label everything once its copied.

Any cool tips?
