So I am not able to set \Seen as the cyrus user in a normal user's account
and have that normal user seen the setting of the \Seen flag?

If so, I can see where that makes sense, but *really* what I need at the
moment. I had a glitch this morning and all *.seen files were corrputed.
I shutdown the server, removed the *.seen files, started the server, and
now want to reset \Seen for all my users.
