you must recover the enitre mailbox from your backup, for example user 
called "generic"

at this point you use reconstruct to rebuild hte mailbox with cyrus 
index files

su cyrus
reconstruct -r -f user.generic

then you rebuild hte quota

quota -f user.generic

and you are done.

But you must recover the individual message files in the mailbox path 
otherwise you are lost.
