Does anyone actually backup and restore Cyrus IMAPd with Tivoli Storage 
Manager (TSM)?

As far as my backup admin told me, the restore tool only shows file 
names, I cannot see file content. So if user comes and tells
"I lost my email x from user y, which arrived 2 weeks ago."
I (obviously) cannot ask him about the filename. And cannot search the 
backup store for user b's email address. :(

A workaround would be to restore the complete folder to /tmp/ and grep 
there for the right mail file. hm...

Any advice?
