That file is a transaction log for the Berkeley DB databases used by Cyrus 
(which is unlikely to include the mboxlist database these days).  It is 
not intended for human consumption.

Log entries intended for system administrators are sent to syslog. Cyrus 
doesn't log information about mailboxes and messages which are deleted.
