Hi Simon,

the option hashimapspool is true in my /etc/imapd.conf, I stoped 
cyrus-imap services, then  tried /usr/lib/cyrus-imapd/rehash -i none, 
there was some error message occurs like "converting data partition 
/var/spool/imap...couldn't rename t to .t at (eval 1) line 951, <STDIN> 
line 2.",  it did change /var/spool/imap/t/user/test to 
/var/spool/imap/user/test. however I could not access the mailbox 
after, it always said "system I/O error". I had to 
/usr/lib/cyrus-imapd/reconstruct -r user.test, but it went back to 
/var/spool/imap/t/user/test again
