Your logs look good to me. Are you sure there isn't a client issue
involved, like a client side move/delete filter?

You could rule that out by enabling telemetry logging. See



mkdir <configdirectory>/log/myuser at domain.com
chown cyrus:mail <configdirectory>/log/myuser at domain.com

However, that will only capture activity done under the myuser at domain.com
user. If you allow any other users access to the mailbox, they will need to
have their own directories created underneath log.
