delayed expunge sounds interesting to me, so far we used reconstruct to
recover deleted mail from our backups. So i need the option expunge_mode
set to delayed. Do i also need to set the option delete_mode to delayed?
Most restore operations we have to do are about whole folders that have
been deleted.
