If you deleted them without Cyrus knowing about it, your best bet is to 
take Cyrus down, dump the mboxlist (ctl_mboxlist -d >file.txt), edit the 
text version of the file to remove things that are no longer there, and 
then undump the mboxlist (ctl_mboxlist -u -f file.txt), and then bring 
everything up.  You really should not be deleting things under Cyrus's 
control except through Cyrus.
