Zitat von Adam Parrott <pinguskahn at>:

> i was running cyrus and postfix on my suse 8.2 box. all mail was kept
> in /var/spool/imap/user for each user. the only backup i kept was the
> contents of the /var/spool/imap directory. the harddrive was noisy so
> i decided to replace it and at the same time i am switching to debian.
> the distro swith really doesn't have too much to do with the problem
> but i am just offering as much info on the situation that i can.
> after i have tried to restore the mail by copying it in the folder and
> doing reconstruct and it not working i have found that there were some
> other files that i should have backed up also. so my question is, how
> can i restore the email and folders that existed when all i have is
> the contents of the folder. It may also help to mention that my next
> setup will involve mysql, postfix, and cyrus.
