I tried to upgrade the old version with 2.1 but the conversion
of the databases failed half-way-trough. So I copied all the
maildirs (/var/spool/cyrus/mail/*) to another place and made
a reinstallation of the old version. The old version couldn't
either read the mail because of some I/O error. So I purged
everything and made a new reinstallation with the old version.

Is it possible to import the mails that I've copied to another
location into Cyrus IMAP again?
