Sorry about that, my recollection of -p functionality was incorrect. It
will add mailboxes whose parent directory isn't a mailbox, but you still
have to specify the path to the mailbox. So for example if you
know /var/spool/cyrus/mail/c/user/psmith/CLIENTS/submailboxname is valid,
/usr/sbin/cyrreconstruct -p default user/psmith/CLIENTS/submailboxname
should add "submailboxname" even if "CLIENTS" is just a directory without
cyrus metadata. The "-rf" functionality is slightly different because it
needs a valid mailbox to start from.
If you have a lot of these cases, you might be able to automate this by
running "ctl_mboxlist -v" and cutting out the mailboxes that are listed
as being on the filesystem but not in the database.
