Hi folks,

I'm currently testing a migration script for migrating across from Cyrus 
2.2 to Cyrus 2.4 based on the recipe here: 

This is currently working well, and I have added some extra copy 
commands to ensure that the seen db information is copied across from 

However, while the seen db information for my personal folders is being 
transferred across fine, all of the shared folders are currently marked 
as unread.

So I have 2 questions:

1) Where is the seen db information held for the shared (public) 
folders? It doesn't seem to be under /var/imap/user.

2) Once I find it, how can I migrate it across from the 2.2 server to 
the 2.4 server?

Many thanks,
