I would think you could do this via sieve.  Under 2.0, you can define a 
system-wide sieve script that could implement this.  So you'd tell it to 
copy the mail to folder (which would still be within the user's mailbox 
- not sure what this accomplishes for you).

Sounds like you're trying to fix the wrong problem - what's the issue 
with your backups?  I've got an simple script using rsync that copies 
our mail spool nightly - I've got a daily backup for a year's worth.
