But only if you intend to not go via the old address, I personally
wouldn't mind. Using the old address won't hurt, except that the message
may be 5 seconds longer on its way (because it has to go through
uvena.de first) but who cares :).

Seriously, I don't think this will cause bigger problems and in the long
term usage of the old addresses will just go away. I'm more afraid of
tinkering some conditional rewriting of mails nobody remembers in a
couple of months and which is often subject to obscure errors.
