In an interview with CNET News, Ladar Levison (founder of Lavabit) answered to the question What happens to your customer's e-mails and data?:

I'm looking into setting up a site where users can download their data and set up a forwarding [e-mail] address, but that may take a week or two to set up. That's all I can do until I feel confident that I can resume the service without having to compromise its integrity.

I will make it clear that I don't plan to use any encryption for that site. [People] should only use it if they feel comfortable with the information being intercepted. And yes, I do plan to have that disclaimer on the site.

Whether for setting up a forwarding address for new incoming mails, or whether for downloading all online saved mails, or for both:

Is there such a site? If not, will there be one?

Ha, great! Thank you, John C. I asked four days too early ;-) For the record, here is the press release. – unor Oct 16 '13 at 6:05
And here is the announcement from Levison himself. – unor Oct 16 '13 at 9:30
