Cyrus IMAP // Mail Archive // Reception notification // Reconstruct

I have imported quite a big amount of mails from another mailsystem
(drag and drop from a PC from one account to another within the same
client - the old one was a kind of Exchange account (software known as
ShareFolder) and the new one a cyrus imap account (new & empty at that
By importing, all flags read/unread have been lost. The annoying part is
the status of the reception notifications. All mails are marked as
unread and therefore the client wants to send a notification.
To increase the problem, the new account is now a shared folder where
quite a few people access to the mails and each user has his own mail
I guess the only way to delete this unwanted automatic notification is
to erase in each mail the 2 lines indicating that a notification is
requested (in each sub-folder etc...). Is that right?
For that I would need to make a script which looks for these 2 lines:
- X-Confirm-Reading-To: <addr>
- Disposition-Notification-To: <addr>
The question is now, what happens to the cyrus.* files? I guess they
will become corrupt. Is recontruct the right tool then to make it all
work again afterwards?
PS: as I am not the best scripter, any help with such a script is welcome...
