OK, I have done backup of /Var/lib/imap and /var/spool/imap dir's, then I 
have copied these dir's to a new server, make sure everything is owned by 
cyrus user and then start cyrus-imapd. The problem is that when connected 
with an imap client I can see the headers of the messages but not the 
bodies - they are all blank. I have tried with reconstruct but after I ran 
it I loose even the headers from the messages.
What am I doing wrong here?
