Hi Eric,

For the owner of the mailbox (or all users if shared seen is enabled),
the seen state is stored as a system flags in the cyrus.index file.
As for dealing with seen issues - you need to authenticate as that user
or use a tool to introspect the index file (like mbdump or my
index_uids.pl tool) to see the flags.
