Any help with this would be much appreciated.
We keep coming across folders that once they have been migrated seem to
have corrupt cyrus.index files. The only way to fix them is to remove the
files and do a reconstruct. This is not a workable solution from our users
point of view as is sets all the messages back to flaggged as new etc.
We have tried various tests, but we can't discover the cause of the
corruption of the cyrus.index files.
