similar but different

I had a bad time with cyrus-imapd today and when I did reconstruct, I
found out that there were many thousands of emails in user.root
directory. Took forever to reconstruct root mailbox which was my first
clue  ;-)

so would I just do...

# purge unread from user.root
purgebulk   cmd="/usr/sbin/ipurge -d 60 -f user.root" at=200

to purge all over 60 days old?
