I've been waiting for one of the veterans on the list to reply to this
one. Maybe I've missed the post.
I've been using Cyrus in testing for ~1.5 months.
I ran into a 'problem' during testing that may be related to the one
you've encountered. I started out using the bdb backend. During
testing, I moved (as in /bin/mv) a physical mailbox (in
/var/spool/imap), and then tried to pop a message. It looked like the
daemon tried to open the non-existent directory and when it failed, it
wrote an error something like this in the mailboxes.db (where the
mailbox def for the directory I moved was supposed to be):
System I/O error: no such file or directory
None of the methods that I tried (dumping to text, recovery, etc.)
FWIW, I tried the same thing with the skiplist backend and it didn't
have this problem.
