Hi all.

I'm going to use Cyrus 2.1.12 (been using 2.1.5). This is the config:

OS: Tru64 UNIX 4.0D
DB: Berkeley DB 4.1.25-patch1
SASL: 2.1.12
IMAP: 2.1.12

My question is: what is the recomended maintainance of Cyrus' databases?

I will have "ctl_cyrusdb" as part of boot process in /etc/cyrus.conf. I was 
wondering if I can delete those *.db files in ${config}/db/ directory upon Cyrus 
startup or after shutdown.

What about Delivered DB and TLS Session DB? Canthey be somehow trimmed down or
