Thank, good hints!

I am looking for a situation where about 20 Mailboxes (sun mailboxes) where completely deleted. There should be corresponding action on the mailboxes.db. It is a very small server and mailboxes are deleted never. I have a small window in time when it happened, so it may be possible that I see a pattern which gives me idea what has happened.

Unfortunatley I have wrong DB-versions on my laptop - so I will do the analysis on the server directly.
