Hi all,

I had to reload my notebook, and now I'm trying to restore my mail.  I
had cyrus-imap running before.  I made a tarball of the whole
/var/spool/cyrus directory, and restored that after reloading.  Then I
logged into cyradm as user cyrus and ran:

reconstruct user.hansdp

Try (if you are root), if user cyrus owns the mailboxes:
/usr/bin/sudo -u cyrus /usr/cyrus/bin/reconstruct -f -r user.hansdp

or as the cyrus user

/usr/cyrus/bin/reconstruct -f -r user.hansdp

On my cyrus setup I have /var/spool/imap (mailboxes) and /var/imap (db files that control the mailboxes, quotas, etc).

Did you backup both ?? Or just your mailboxes ?

It didn't change much, cyrus would still only see my inbox, none of the

I'm obviously doing this wrongly.  What is the correct way to restore a
cyrus mailbox?
