Probably, yes. You can first copy the whole directory structure
(~/.claws-mail/imapcache/$SERVER/$ACCOUNT/) to another directory (like
~/IMAP-backup) and then add this directory as an MH mailbox, from the
"/File/Add mailbox/MH" menu.

You'll then have a copy of your emails locally, and will be able to
copy back everything to the IMAP server using Claws Mail, drag and
dropping the root folders. It's probably going to take some time but
should work.
