Hello List,

I have a problem with imported mailboxes. i have two Cyrus Imap servers.
On both should be the same mailboxes, beause one of thme is a backup

To manage this, i copied alle files, which are needed onto the second

i typed: /usr/lib/cyrus/bin/ctl_mboxlist -u < mailboxfile
an had no problems. I tried to open the mailbox with Squirrelmail and i
got the message: "unknown/invalid partition".

I checked the /etc/imapd.conf, but the directories are ok.

With cyradm i can add user (cm user.xxx). When i type lm, i can see all
the imported mailboxes. But when i do something else: "unknown/invalid

I am running:  Cyrus IMAP4 v2.2.12 on the backup server, on the other is
v2..3.8. is this the problem?

Thanks for help!
