Rename the archive account so mail sent to the address will fail.  
Then users will have to use the address book to find the correct one. 

You may be able to work some magic w/ nicknames, but I don't use them
here, and have had them fail for internet addressing, so I'm not the
best to give you a course of action for that side of it.  But you may be
able to use a nickname to get the mail to the new account.
