Restore backup of a mailbox

A user has removed an important mailbox with all the sent-messages.

I've tried to restore the data from a backup, but then I don't see the
mailbox with sent-messages.  And I don't find the programm
"cyrreconstruct" anymore (the Debian version of "reconstruct").

Then I've tried to restore everything from the user, everything from
/var/spool/cyrus/mail/t/user/username and from
/var/lib/cyrus/user/t/username*. Then I see the mailboxes, but nothing
in it.

Can somebody tell me what's the correct way to restore a backup of only
one user?

With regards,
