First time posting here so apologies if this question has (most likely)
been asked before. have looked in the archives of this list but can't
My Cyrus Imapd mail server has crashed (hardware error). I have access
to the hard drives but it has taken me some time to buy a new server and
install a new cyrus imapd.
Basically, I've got my previous server's /var/spool/cyrus/mail/
directory with all it's subfolders (s/user/stephen etc) and I'd like to
import the mail files in there (1. 2. 3. etc) into my new
imapd's mailstore. I've read and experimented that it's not a case of
just dump the mails in the appropriate folder, since a mail has to go
through the proper channels,
be registered in cyrus.index etc so that my mail client knows which
headers are available, which files they relate to etc.
Is there a tool available for this purpose please?
thanks for any and all help
