Disappearing Mailbox Content

I will check the ACL, good call.  We do have delayed delete implemented but when we get there it has always been too late.

They have thousands of folders.  What would be the best way to propagate that change via cyradm?

Will report back.

Check the ACL on the mailbox and make sure no user has permission to delete the mailbox-- no "x" right. Loss of all content including the cyrus* files is mailbox deletion. (This is the voice of experience talking)

Too bad you didn't implement delayed delete. You can just rename the deleted folder to its original name.
