If the mailbox still exists in the DELETED hierarchy, then you can simply
rename the mailbox using cyradm:
rename DELETED.user.<username> user.<username>
This is only true if you are using delayed delete mode in imapd.conf:
If the mailbox no longer exists in the DELETED hierarchy, follow these
1. Re-create the mailbox using cyradm:
2. Recover the message files (#. files) but not the cyrus.* files
3. Run "su cyrus -c '/usr/local/cyrus/bin/reconstruct -x -f
4. Run "su cyrus -c '/usr/local/cyrus/bin/quota -f user.<username>'"
Let us know if you have any questions!
