This is normally no MTA's job. As more biased to Sendmail I know you can
do copying of mail using milters (like synonym, milter-bcc or
MimeDefang) to do so, though it is not really what you have in mind with
replication. I think Postfix does neither really support this. Read for
instance following answer by Wietse - the Postfix author - about that


Though the posting is fairly old I think nothing changed in this regard.

If you want to replicate mail boxes  - as initially said this is not
task of an MTA - you should consider using rsync between then POP3/IMAP
servers. Another way would be to use what Cyrus-IMAPd comes with: the
murder. It is packaged with FC2 and does what you want automatically and
the correct way.
